According to USA Today, Canes' Al Golden 46th highest paid coach in college football

USA Today released its annual list of how much college football coaches are making and Hurricanes coach Al Golden ranks 46th among the 119 the newspaper was able to calculate.

Golden, signed through Feb. 1, 2020, is making $2.148 million this season, less than at least seven other coaches in the ACC. Seven schools weren't represented in the chart: ACC schools Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Boston College were among them.

The coaches USA Today says are making more than Golden: FSU's Jimbo Fisher ($2.75m), N.C. State's Dave Doeren ($2.555m), Clemson's Dabo Swinney ($2.550m), Virginia Tech's Frank Beamer ($2.541m), Georgia Tech's Paul Johnson ($2.515m), Wake Forest's Jim Grobe ($2.251m) and Virginia's Mike London ($2.189m).

Here is the link to the chart with all coaching salaries.

Alabama's Nick Saban pulls in the most money among all coaches at $5.545 million. Interestingly enough Penn State's Bill O'Brien checks in at $3.282 million, 14th overall. Florida's Will Muschamp is making $2.734 million.

What golden has done at miami is amazing. larry coker started the talent drought and it ended up continuing under shannon. Love shannon the player and d coordinator shannon the hc not so much. Golden has built a solid foundation. When u see where he started talent wise vs fisher and muschamp he is easily doing the best job of the 3. Even if fisher has a better record. Miami was considered at best an 8 win team coming into the season maybe 9 by most. They could well win 10. and go to acc title game . winning coastal to me would be a great step for this team.

jsy, i know you're being diplomatic, but when an imbecile tries to refute facts by using percentages, here's all you need to know is what you already know about 3rd down statistics, Fsu took there first drive and went down field and scored a touchdown just like wake forest did the week prior on there 1st drive so the question to coach goldie and his slurping followeres, is wake forest on the same level as Fsu, if we go by first drives they i couldn't tell the difference.

When a tightend has 8 catches for 199yds alone, how many times did we stop Unc on 3rd downs. We're one of the worst teams in college football when it comes to time of possesion, must be from all those 3 & outs we keep getting.

Here's what you need to ask them, take those Savannah St. 3rd down statics out the equation and do it vs real d-1 schools.


Right on man.

Another person with common sense and facts in his statements.

Thank God.

Some days the BS around here gets so deep from the trolls and haters, it's hard to breath.


Calvin is the guy who thinks Randy Shannon was a great coach and Jacory Harris the best QB to every play the game.

I'm loyal to my Canes past and present. But i'm also fact based.

Calvin's no Cane fan.

He's just simply a hater.

And he especially hates white coaches who take over for Randy Shannon.

Black on White racism at it's purest.

Can't argue with the crazy guy on screaming on the corner in Overtown.

Just keep moving and don't make eye contact.

Why does every SEC Coach and 45 other Coaches get paid more than Golden ?

Because they're ALL better Coaches.

SEC also leads the country in college football rapists and felons.

And no one roots for a conference.

Who's your team?

Lemme guess, Gaytor...


cool cat u dweeb- and who got the ball to the playmakers?

Who orchestrtaed that lst drive against FSU in 2000 with 1:36 left and while beingslammed he waited tillthe very last second to find Shockey up the middle?

I never said he did it alone. But the B gets the criticism and the glory as he is the Offens' leader.

Your boy Kenny Kelly was a scrub. He was a good baseball player. Thats it. Your boy Crudup- scrub. And dontget me started with Jokecorry

But I am balanced and I will admit Kyle Wright wa 10 times worse than Harris and Kirby Freeman wa 10 worse than Wright. Marve? BAd.

I agree with thepost above ^^^^

Calvin, cool cat, cane 72, HTC and Gallo- TROLLS

Rematch with FSU? Al Golden says Canes "don't even live in that world" right now....

there is your answer after 3 yrs and a senior team....so 2013 nothing....the only world golden lives in is a world where he pads his record against scrub inferior teams.....

all this "UTough" and players getting bigger and MORE MATURE is all BS.....whats funny is that the worst quarter for fsu is the 1st..

fsu - 89 points scored to 35 opponents......the 3rd quarter is the worst for opponents and fsu BEST quarter....

fsu - 138 to 29 opponents....UM coaches had NO plan to counter pruitt.....this is all on the coaches....

1.5 mil to shannon vs 2.1 to golden, at least shannon could beat fsu...golden thinks he cant...

NCAA? golden didn't have to recruit anyone for 2013.....dont forget gionni paul - eddie johnson and thomas finnie....

golden/dnofrio was left with tremendous talent and he f...cked it up......

I agree with Football. The Offense is underachieving. The Defense is doing pretty much what it can. #77 played like he could have done more at times, but he may have turned the corner. We'll see on Saturday. MIAMI fans need to come to the game. That's the biggest issue facing this team and program.

this blog has been hijacked by morons. childish keyboard tough guys. glass I have 247 so you have to responsible and topical with your posts.

So WHAT. The guy is still making millions which equate to about $179k per month. Am sure he would love to get that number to about $210k per month, and maybe they should give him that, but in comparsion to J.Fisher and The clemson coach(and we know what those 2 teams are doing on the filed and in recruiting), his salary is decent.

Calvina, learn to spell there/their/they're correctly every once in a while, before moving on to things like percentages. Why don't you and your small brain racist co-resident take a hike?


Can we talk about VT now Manny and Susan?????

I don't know if you guys know ANYTHING about Canes football, but VT is a dogfight yearly.

This team has had our number for Coker and Shannon's years.

We are facing a tough Defense. Which matches up very well against our very weak Offense- who doesn't have Duke.

Our Defense will continue being the strength of this team and will keep us in the game once again.

What the hell will Steven Morris do this game?

I trust Dallas will bash the line. Let's pray he stays healthy as they will likely try to go low block on him because he's so hard to bring down.

VT damn it!

Get your head in the game, this is supposed to be a Canes blog!

Lame sports writers.....

HMMMM!!!!!I wonder if GALLO help the USA Today with this list, since he loves making them!!

one word for you imbeciles
