The Pac-12 has been the conference buzzing the last few weeks, with two big hires for Arizona and Washington State.
The salaries in the Pac-12 for current coaches are below:
Chip Kelly - Oregon: $2,800,000
Jeff Tedford - California: $2,300,000
Steve Sarkisian - Washington: $2,250,000
Mike Leach - Washington State: $2,225,000
Rich Rodriguez - Arizona: $1,190,000
Kyle Whittingham - Utah: $1,700,000
Mike Riley - Oregon State: $1,313,471
Jon Embree - Colorado: $725,000
Note that USC has not released Lane Kiffin's compensation; but we're pretty sure he's at the top of the list. Stanford, a private university, is not required to, and they do not, disclose David Shaw's compensation; but we're also pretty sure his would not be at the top of this list.
With the new TV money coming in soon, ASU and UCLA should have more than enough to be competitive on this list if they feel that is necessary to attract the right guy. Best part of the TV money might be what lies in it for the assistants!
Quick summary of the 4 guys who are done:
Erickson was $1.5 million. Stoops was $1.465 million. Neuheisel was $1.285 million and Paul Wulff was $600,000.
