NFL Coaching salaries


Die Hard

Recommended Posts

Just curious..... in any of the articles concerning new coaching hires... .head coaches, assistant coaches, defensive coordinators....

has anyone noticed their salaries posted anywhere?

I'm just curious... as I haven't read it anywhere... and yet, why is Al Saunders' contract made public? And only his?

What's Mularkey making in Miami? Same with Dom Capers? What is the salary given out to these new head coaches?

Here's ESPN's article on Jauron's hire:

The Texans hire of Kubiak:

Dom Capers hire in Miami:

Mike Mularkey's hire in Miami:

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2301934

Heres' the closed thing to getting details:

"Linehan was earning about $800,000 per year on his contract, so Mularkey likely is in the same compensation category."

Gary Gibbs hire in New Orleans:

It appears that Mularkey will make around $800K.

Speculation at best.

Heck, with Saunders contact, we knew EVERYTHING!!

We knew that he bluffed about the Raiders offering him a contract, we heard that he bluffed about a fake article about some interest the Rams had.... we knew that Joe Gibbs personally flew down to Kansas City to meet with him... the length of contract, the annual salaries.... and what his exact title would be.

All for the hire of a new offensive coordinator.

Where's the media's extensive coverage on these other NFL teams?

That's because Danny Boy is paying him! The press always wants to know what a Redskin player or coach is making because it is always ground breaking. The other 31 teams are just plain boring.

Mularkey agreed to a three-year contract that will pay him approximately $1 million per season, although the Dolphins don't expect Mularkey to be with the team more than a year or two before getting another chance to be a head coach.

Mularkey walked away from the final two years of his contract with Buffalo on Jan. 12 after disagreements with Bills management. Mularkey, a Fort Lauderdale native and former University of Florida standout, was scheduled to receive $1.6 million and $1.8 million for the 2006 and 2007 seasons, respectively.

A $2 million assistant is a more interesting story than an $800K head coach, so I guess more people will investigate/report...

See, I would figure with a Head Coach making $5M/year (same salary that Spurrier received), and a new contract extension for Gregg Williams that earned him $2.6M/year.... that giving Al Saunders $2M/year wouldn't be such a "big" story considering the precedent set.

Well, at least the local papers picked it up :) Thanks Bubba.

But the precedent was set by the same organization, so I can see it being a "biggish" story. Until other teams start paying the same kind of money, the Redskins will always be the "poster-team" for perceived overpaying.

But... they aren't overpaying.

Williams was the big story.... he led his defense to a #4 overall ranking last year... and #9 this year. And he got a $2.6M/year contract.

Big story? Yes. The precedent has been set. In fact, we also learned that all the defensive coaching staff got raises. Great.

Now, the Redskins hire an offensive coordinator who has led his offense to the #1 overall ranking the past 2 years.... to a smaller contract that Williams received.

So why is the "salary" still the big story? The only story.

I don't think they're overpaying, either. Until the top coaches make what players make they're underpaid.

But I can see why the Saunders salary is still a big story. It's really a continuation of the Williams story. The story of an organization deciding for itself (not easy to do in the NFL) what is considered a fair salary for an assistant coach.

A lot of people have feelings on this, clearly negative and positive, and that makes for a good story. From now on, teams are going to look at the Redskins as a barometer for coaching salaries, so whatever the Redskins do in this regard is going to be news, for better or worse.

I think it's a good thing.

DH - I sense the rhetorical tone and I, along with you, feel your pain. I have relatives who live in Arizona and California and each emailed me non-AP and boldfaced blurbs of Saunders' deal soup-to-nuts. My response in each case was to ask if they knew his shoe size and favorite entree, which I'm sure will hit the wire any day now. It's just flat ridiculous that there's a double standard and you're not paranoid or alone in thinking that everything we do is set under a microscope and then broadcast to the four winds. I fully expect Al-Jazeera to air exclusive video of Gibbs' secret meeting with Saunders, it's really just a matter of time.
