Saturday--February 11th, 2011

Matty V. has a story on Coach Molnar's compensation package. It seems right in line with other MAC HC packages. Interesting is the fact that there were 120 FBS teams last year and 50 of them payed their coach $1 million or more.

Speaking of coaches compensation packages, according to an article in todays Boston Globe a former coach and a current coach at Umass are amongst the highest paid state employees in Mass. Former football coach Kevin Morris made $664,446.00 in 2011 making him the 3rd highest paid state employee. Obviously his base salary plus his two year buyout. Basketball coach Derek Kellogg made $520,845.00 in 2011 making him the 7th highest paid state employee in Mass.

Wow. Morris certainly had the golden parachute.

Nice buyout for Morris. Glad my tax dollars went to that. What other coaches got buyouts?
