Carroll top paid coach?

According to tax returns filed by USC, Pete Carroll earned $4,436,386 last year, according to the LA Times blog. (via Wizard of Odds).

The Wizard of Odds concludes: Pete Carroll would appear to be the highest-paid college football coach in the land…

But is he? Forbes estimated Saban’s compensation is closer to $5 million, and what about Charlie Weis?

Also, LA is an expensive town. How far does $4.4 million per year go? That is probably closer to $2 million in Tuscaloosa.

    It would make me feel better if the barner “nayshun” would learn that their team is spelled “A-U-B-U-R-N” not “C-A-P-S-T-O-N-E” ..then maybe when they google THEIR team they may actually find a site about THEIR team….quack! quack aubies!

    What the hell does it matter what he makes or anybody else ? If the Private Sector wants to pay this money – go for it ! When Public Money is being used – yeah – it’s going to be my business as an Taxpayer.
    All of this is bad manners. I’m going to belch.

    Why don’t sabin do like bear and give his salary back to the University? He might start talking to the real fans instead of the Hand Picked Upper Boosters.

    Ballplay, how much would the Auturd program pay to win a NC? Tubearsville salary isn’t going to make it, besides with all that record school profit you claim they make, it looks like you could give your coach and not just your sociology professors some more cash.

    Hey, at least the guy will make it into the hall of fame, instead of being a one hit wonder while dominating while his primary competition was seemingly nonexistent the way sir Tuberredneck will forever be known for.

    Omniprick, are you really happy with a coach that can only muster up one sec in fourteen years? Saban doubled that and won a NC in less than one third of that time, you idiots just hope the recruiting master is on another team. Tell Twobigearsville good luck duck hunting this year, Shhhhh, listen, I hear a jet firing up. . . . .

    That would be my cue.
    Yes I will admit that I was on the jet during the infamous “jet gate” scandal. But it is nothing sordid like the media makes it sound. We were having a wine tasting while listening to Luciano Pavaratti, when someone thought it would be a hoot if we went out and talked to Bobby Petrino. Most of us have never actually spoken to an Italian-American before. And since he is a third generation, he is practically straight off the boat.

    We shall see the outcome of the Clemson game in 1 and 1/2 weeks…It shall be interesting to say the least…Bamaman will you man up and take your medicine if it is a Clemson beatdown on Bama? I will be here win or lose to see….Do you still think LAMO beats Auburn ? If Auburn beats LAMOs brains out, will you be making excuses ? I really can not wait till next weekend.

    Ballplay, I never said anything about LAMO beating the Auturds, check your files. It’s the embarassing smack down of GA, LSU, W Vir, AL and probably Ms St (again) that you have to worry about. Oh, I will man up and take anything you can dish out. If Twobigearsville can only win one SEC in fourteen years what makes you think this year will be any different? Are we clear. . . .

    Crystal….I cant recall , but Im thinking it was NYC or berman…..Anyhow Several Bammers have been predicting a LAMO upset……They are just setting themselves up for more disappointment…Ms. State aint happenin….Alabama aint happenin.I dont think LSU is happenin. W. Virginia you could flip a coin over….Georgia. You may be right….You cant count not winning a conference championship at Ole Miss…….That is impossible…..Just count his Auburn years aight…..Well see if you man up in a week and a half.

    Ballplay, I will man up to this, like you did above, Clemson you can flip a coin, LSU aint happenin, MS State aint happenin, Au aint happenin, Ga you may be right. You all dam sure count Sabans record at Michigan St and Miami everytime talk of records come up, it took CTT four years to accomplish anything at AU and you all give Saban hell for one. Sabans record year one is better than big ears. . . aight.

    I give Saban credit for what he has done, but I give more credit to Muschamp and Fisher. Saban is a man of many talents. I heard he was a stunt double for a Japanese mans penis in a oriental porn flick.

    Bamaman , youve never heard me bring up Sabans record at other schools. I think what he did at LSU was good. Heck , hes a good coach. But so is Tubbs….If we both took off the goggles, we would be able to see that.
