November 20, 2014
 
 

The University of Alabama's Nick Saban is by far the nation's highest-paid college football coach, at $7.1 million this year, but another 26 coaches are also earning at least $3 million in 2014-15, USA Today's annual survey of Football Bowl Subdivision coaches' salaries finds. Four head coaches -- Michigan State University's Mark Dantonio, the University of Oklahoma's Bob Stoops, Texas A&M University's Kevin Sumlin, and the University of Texas at Austin's Charlie Strong -- join Saban with salaries of $5 million or more, and a total of 11 coaches top the $4 million mark.

Seven institutions -- Boston College, Brigham Young, Syracuse, Temple and Vanderbilt, and Wake Forest Universities, and the University of Southern California -- declined to provide salary information to the newspaper.
