I've heard over and over that Nick Saban is a hard man to work for. He's very demanding of everyone in the program...especially assistant coaches. Even with his "all in" attitude, assistants from all over the country beg to work under him. One, because they learn to be a better coach and two, they get paid well for their work.
Here are Alabama assistant coaches salaries for 2017. This does not include incentives/bonuses they get for bowl games, SEC titles, national titles etc..
Jeremy Pruitt, defensive coordinator, $1.300,000
Brian Daboll, offensive coordinator, $1.200,000
Tosh Lupoi, linebackers, $950,000*
Mike Locksley, wide receivers, $600,000
Scott Cochran, strength & conditioning, $535,000
Burton Burns, running backs, $490,000
Derrick Ansley, defensive backs, $405,000
Brent Key, offensive line, $400,000
Joe Pannunzio, tight ends, $375,000
Karl Dunbar, defensive line, $275,000**
*Star recruiter one of the best in the country.
**Being paid under another contract. Will make $575,000 2018.
Rule # 1...you don't work under Saban unless you can recruit. Period!
