I think you will get your wish.
Sparty coordinators and assistant football coaches just got some pretty significant pay raises, especially Narduzzi whose salary more than doubled. It's not really surprising, given the success they've had and how low some of those salaries were compared to their counterparts elsewhere. Narduzzi's new contract also has a buyout clause if he takes another DC job (but not if he gets a HC job).
The Chronicle of Higher Education this morning posted that Tom Izzo made $8.7 million in 2006 because of one time bonuses.
This is on the heels of Mack Brown getting basically a $2 million annual retention bonus.
This is at a time when American higher ed is really hurting.
