FOOTBALL: How Much Does Your Favorite Football Coach Make?

The lowest ranked in the SEC is making 1,150,000 and is ranked 64th out of 120 salaries listed.

The supposedly best coaches in the country are at the top.  Lane Kiffin is ranked 5th, I guess because of where he is coaching.

Joker Phillips is 39th. Supposedly earning more than  Rich Brooks did in his final season.

Jimbo Fisher is going to be in a hot seat from the git-go following a legend at Florida State. Expectations aren't going to sit still while he gets his feet wet.

Should expectations be watered down while fans wait for success at schools were the 'coach in waiting' is taking over?

The players knew the waiting coaches were 'next in line' when they signed at these particular schools and the coach moving in to the head spot should know the talent and who's willing to lay in on the line.  No introductory period is needed. What do you think will happen at Kentucky and also at Florida State?

Thanks to Bleacher Report for the salaries.
