Jim Mora Is The 38th Highest Paid Football Coach in the Country

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

USAToday has released a list of college football coaches, their salaries and their total pay. Jim Mora, whose base salary is 2.3 million dollars per season (or more than 65 times the amount of money John Wooden made in a season while coaching at UCLA) ranks 38th. His base salary matches Arizona State's Todd Graham.

Mora is tied for sixth in the conference (again, with Graham). Lane Kiffin ranks first, Mike Riley last. David Shaw of Stanford, is not included. I assume that because Stanford is a private school, they were able to elect not to disclose Shaw's salary.

Seven SEC coaches earn more than Kiffin. Eleven SEC coaches earn more than Mora.

Kiffiin's salary was just under 2.6 million for the year. Most of the conference coaches are paid in roughly the same range, with none of them coming close to the money made by Nick Saban. None of them win like Saban, either. (In fairness to Oregon's Mark Helfrich, he's never lost a game as head coach. He earns 1.8 million per season)

Also of note: Not one coach in the Pac 12 exceeds the (mythical?) UC Regents 3 million dollar limit. If UCLA found a coach worthy of making 3 million, they could hire him without UC Regent approval and still make him the highest paid coach in the league.

If they found a coach worth 3 million.

Here is the whole table. Have fun analyzing it in the comments below.
