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.
