What Big 12 coaches made per win
By Jake Trotter
Kansas’ Charlie Weis was the sixth-highest paid FBS coach this year.
In pay per victory.
Weis, in his second season, was paid $2.5 million, or $833,333 for each of his three victories, according to a database assembled by USA TODAY.
The survey did not include private schools or others whose compensation figures were not available.
Texas’ Mack Brown and West Virginia’s Dana Holgorsen ranked ninth and 10th in cost per victory. Brown was paid $674,063 for each of Texas’ eight wins; Holgorsen, $657,500 for West Virginia’s four wins.
The most cost-efficient coaches in the Big 12 were Oklahoma State’s Mike Gundy and Texas Tech’s Kliff Kingsbury. Gundy earned just $345,000 for each of his 10 wins. Kingsbury made $265,000 apiece for Tech’s seven victories.
The survey did not include private schools (Baylor or TCU) or others whose compensation figures were not available.
