Very interesting chart.
I already thought coaches made too much money, but my goodness, football and basketball coaches really make too much money.
I was almost really annoyed because this chart suggests that Maryland football coach Randy Edsall makes more $$ than Maryland basketball coach Mark Turgeon, and that ain’t right, but I looked it up and Maryland should actually be stripey.
According to The Baltimore Sun’s Maryland public employee salary database, Edsall and Turgeon make the same base salary ($400,000) per year. (Whew.)
(The Washington Post broke down the salaries, incentives, and other potential payments of all the ACC football and basketball coaches back in 2011 when Turgeon was hired. Slightly outdated now but still interesting for context.)

Why the hell did the Towson guys tackle him?
