Editorial titled "Why should Notre Dame's football coach make more than tenured professors?". While I agree that the Weissicane specifically shouldn't make more than a professor, the article isn't actually ND bashing and instead a proposal that universities with federal funding shouldn't be allowed to be paid more than the average for a tenured professor. The writer argues that the hypocrisy from paying coaches more than the university president undercuts the values of higher education.
I'd say that as long as the football department is self-sufficient, coaching pay is fine as is. It would be a bigger mess to try and legislate a solution. Thoughts?
