    These schools can afford it.

    Bielema had a great track record at Wisconsin. Still shouldn't be making the 3rd most in the nation when you have never won any crystal hardware, however.

    Butch Jones was 22-14 in the regular season at Cincinnati. In a really easy conference. That, I don't get why he was even hired in the first place, much less making the ungodly amount of money he is making. This is going to be the 3rd straight disastrous head coaching hire in a row. You simply can't fail 3 times straight at a school with a history like Tennessee. The AD needs to go next.

    Both Bielema's and Jones's listed salary here isn't the true figure. IE: With Bielema it includes 1.9MM from the Wisconsin buyout plus related taxes. His true salary is 3.2MM.

    After "destination charges", taxes, shipping etc., it still cost Arky $5,158,863 to put the Bielema on their field.

    If Jones is being paid anything north of 2 million, it is way too much.
