A look at Pac-12 coaching salaries - Seattle Times
USA Today is releasing its annual package on college football salaries for tomorrow's print edition.
But the on-line version is already available, and here it is.
The general theme of the story is that coaching salaries simply continue to rise, the average major college coach making $1.47 million per year, up 55 percent since 2006.
The list, however, does not include those of coaches from private schools, who are not bound to release such information. That includes two Pac-12 schools --- USC and Stanford.

Here's the list of the other Pac-12 coaches in order of what the newspaper lists as "total pay."
1, Chip Kelly, Oregon, $2.8 million
2, Jeff Tedford, Cal, $2.3 million
3, Steve Sarkisian, Washington, $2.25 million
4, Kyle Whittingham, Utah, $1.7 million
5, Dennis Erickson, Arizona State, $1.5 million
6, Mike Stoops, Arizona, $1.465 million
7, Mike Riley, Oregon State, $1.31 million
8, Rick Neuheisel, UCLA, $1.285 million
9, Jon Embree, Colorado, $725,000
10, Paul Wulff, Washington State, $600,050
USC's Lane Kiffin is probably the highest-paid coach, one report last year saying he makes as much as $4 million a year...
