Pac-12 athletic director salaries
By Ted Miller
UCLA's Dan Guerrero is the Pac-12's top paid athletic director, according to recently released figures from USA Today, while Colorado's Mike Bohn ranked last in the conference among the public schools that are required to disclose salaries.
The salaries for Stanford’s Bernard Muir or USC’s Pat Haden are unavailable because they work for private schools.
Vanderbilt's David Williams tops the list at $3.24 million, but he's a special case. The "true" leader is Louisville's Tom Jurich at $1.412 million.
Nine athletic directors make more than $1 million a year, though none in the Pac-12. It's also notable that the cost of living is much higher in Pac-12 cities compared to cities in just about every other conference.
Guerrero's total pay of $715,211 ranks 18th in the nation.
