The 56-year-old Foley is the highest-paid athletic director among public schools in college football’s top division, according to contracts obtained through open-records requests. His $965,000 in guaranteed salary can grow to more than $1 million after benefits and bonuses. The University of Kansas’s Lew Perkins is second at $900,000, followed by the University of Wisconsin’s Barry Alvarez at $750,000.
The above-mentioned are big schools with big programs (Kansas b-ball is always a favorite), but none (mentioned or not) have had the run Florida is on. The possibility of four major championships in four years, without an hint of impropriety, is hard to argue.
I say money well spent. And…we’ll see ya’ Thursday!
