Pruitt is building his career.... Not just working a job. He will never move to be a head coach without taking on more responsibility and making gameplans and halftime adjustments. Its really simple to understand this.
BTW - from USA Today's coaching database in Nov.:
Alabama's Nick Saban is the highest paid major college football coach at $5.5 million, but Dabo Swinney's assistants at Clemson are believed to be the highest paid staff.
Now check out this part from last year's coaching salary database:
Auburn, in the wake of winning the 2010 Bowl Championship Series national championship, had the highest-paid assistant and the highest-paid staff among the 97 public schools for which USA TODAY could obtain 2011 pay information for at least eight of the nine assistants generally allowed by NCAA rules. There are 120 FBS schools.
The Tigers' assistants made just under $4.2 million this season — a 43% increase over what Auburn's assistants made last season and an average of more than $466,000 per coach. At least 25 FBS head coaches made less than that average this season.
Assistant coaching staffs at five other schools totaled more than $3 million this season: LSU, Alabama, Texas, Tennessee and Florida. In 2009, there was one $3 million staff: Tennessee's, at $3.3 million. Last year, there were three.
Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
Agreed given that the original post wasn't about Pruitt since he left for an understandable promotion.
interested to see who gets hired to replace Pruitt
Pruitt is get a hefty raise.And I have to agree with AustinBama. Our assistant coaches should be highest paid in the country. They are the best. BCSNC 3 out of 4 years. Somebody is doing something right. Our head man is the highest paid I think our assistants shouldnt be any diff. We have the best staff top to bottom in the country. Roll Tide!!
