With the recent raise Kevin Sumlin received from Texas A&M, we figured it was time to take a look at how each of the SEC coach’s salaries stack up against their competition.
There are now eight members of the $3 million club and no coach in the league makes less than $2 million per year.
Georgia is currently getting a steal for market value with Mark Richt.
Despite the fact that Will Muschamp has only been in Gainesville for two years, the Gators are also getting a steal relative to the cash they could fork out for a coach. Another season like 2012, however, and Muschamp will be sitting right at the top of this list with Saban, Miles and Spurrier.
|Nick Saban||Alabama||$5.3 million|
|Les Miles||LSU||$4.3 million|
|Steve Spurrier||South Carolina||$3.6 million|
|Bret Bielema||Arkansas||$3.2 million|
|Kevin Sumlin||Texas A&M||$3.1 million|
|James Franklin||Vanderbilt||$3.0 million*|
|Butch Jones||Tennessee||$3.0 million|
|Mark Richt||Georgia||$3.2 million|
|Gary Pinkel||Missouri||$2.75 million|
|Dan Mullen||Mississippi State||$2.6 million|
|Will Muschamp||Florida||$2.75 million|
|Gus Malzahn||Auburn||$2.3 million|
|Mark Stoops||Kentucky||$2.2 million|
|Hugh Freeze||Ole Miss||$2.0 million|
*Vanderbilt is not required to release salary figures as a private institution, however reports are that his new salary is in excess of $3 million per year.
