There are 21 new FBS coaches this season. Here's a list of each coach first year salary. Most have 5 year contracts. Baylor's coach has a 7 year deal. Take a look...........
Tom Herman, Texas, $5.25 million
P.J. Fleck, Minnesota, $3.5
Ed Orgeron, LSU, $3.5
Jeff Brohm, Purdue, $3.3
Willie Taggart, Oregon, $2.9
Geoff Collins, Temple, $2.0
Luke Fickell, Cincinnati, $1.9
Jeff Tedford, Fresno St., $1.58
Major Applewhite, Houston, $1.5
Justin Wilcox, Cal, $1.5
Charlie Strong, South Florida, $1.0*
Randy Edsall, UConn, $1.0
Lane Kiffin, FAU, $950,000
Butch Davis, FIU, $900,000
Tim Lester, Western Michigan, $800,000
Mike Stanford, Western Kentucky, $800,000
Brent Brennan, San Jose St., $575,000
Shawn Elliott, Georgia St., $565,000
Jay Norvell, Nevada, $450,000
Tom Allen, Indiana, Undeclosed
Matt Rhule, Baylor, Undeclosed**
*Strong's salary is low because he's still being paid by Texas.
**Briles made $5 million so I would assume Rhule is in the same ballpark.
Sidenote: The highest paid assistant coach is LSU's defensive coordinator Dave Aranda who will make $1.8 million this season.
