Bob Stoops, the long-time coaching peer and acquaintance of Alabama's Nick Saban was in Tulsa on Thursday. Two days earlier, Saban's new $6.9 million salary was approved by the UA trustee's compensation committee.
Stoops, who made $4.7 million last year according to USA Today's salary database, was the fifth highest-paid coach in college football.
He was asked if pay for coaches is getting crazy in light of Saban's big raise.
"I don't know," Stoops was quoted as saying by The Tulsa World. "When you compare it to what maybe they bring in, probably not. Compare it to what they were bringing in before he got there and before the program's doing what it is now. I don't know. Business is business. I don't think anybody pays something that they're not able to afford, or that doesn't put them in a positive position. That's in all businesses." (The Birmingham News)
