USA Today has an interesting look at the priorities of colleges and universities these days.

Fifty-six football coaches now earn more than $1 million a year, 25 make more than $2 million, and three more than $4 million.

And that may not be the most disturbing part of the USA Today story, as Inside Higher Education reports.  Almost one in four assistant coaches earns more than $200,000 a year, more than twice the pay of most full professors.

Sixty-six assistant coaches make more than $300,000. One UNC-Chapel Hill assistant makes $330,000. The highest-paid assistant at N.C. State makes $237,000.

That’s more than even Mary Easley was making.
