The usual suspects are near the top. Alabama's Nick Saban gets $5.9 million. Texas's Mack Brown makes $5.2 million, and Oklahoma's Bob Stoops grabs $4.4 million. Urban Meyer is walking away from a $4 million salary, and Rich Rod is at $2.5 million.
The big shocker to me comes in the ACC, as USA Today got a hold of Wake Forest's (private) figure. Brace yourself, Jim Grobe was paid $2.9 million in 2010. Not bad for a coach that had a nine-game losing streak this year and finished 3-9.
