Not sure I understand that one!
Just a guess, but he has more responsibility. He handles special teams as well as a position.

Saban has a plan.
Thompson also makes more than Burns....I know that cant be right...Coffee,Ingram,Trent,Lacey and TJ all have produced big numbers and 1 Heisman and prolly 3 first rounders.....RTR
Asst Head Coach plus former head college head coach.
Because our Special Teams far outperform our running backs.....oh wait.
Doesn't Burns do very little as far as recruiting goes? I think he doesn't want as much responsibility and off campus stuff to do. Lifestyle choice I guess.

Burns recruits Louisiana and does a damn good job their going against LSU....RTr
Does he travel as much as the other recruiters? I know he recruits some, but no where near as much as others. I mean something is different.
On the flip side I don't see Williams being an outstanding recruiter either.
I may be crazy but I thought I remembered reading an article about Burns not wanting the crazy workload and hours that most of our staff keep. I mean he is older. Something's different for his pay scale to be that low. And it's not on field production holding him back lol. He's obviously doing that right.
Scott Cochran is probably the most underpaid.
Burton Burns is a very good running backs coach and does recruit Cajun country. However, look at most any staff, and the running back coach will be one of the lower paid position. I am not a coach, but my understanding has always been that the running back position is the easiest position to coach.
Also, let's get real. It is not like Burton is suffering with his salary and he has not been hired away by another school.
He is just over 30 years old, has a degree in PE, and has a salary on par with the President of the United States.
I'd say he's far from underpaid.
Everybody on our staff is grossly overpaid for what they do, but in today's CFB world, you have to pay to be the king. It is big business.
Look up the same subject every time this is discussed. We should have a book on why coaches are paid as they are by now. LOL
This is what I think.
