    Wow that really seems over the top. Must be a school that has a ton on money to waste.

    It's a private school. They can pay whatever they want.

    There is no high school coach that is worth that though

    I agree they can pay whatever they want. I find it extremely disappointing, however, because IMO high school is the last *almost* pure sports there is.

    What? For the most part, the schools with the most $$, get the best kids, and have the best teams. It's been that way for at least a few decades.

    And there is no college coach that is worth over $1 million, IMO. These people aren't solving the worlds problems.. But it's the nature of the beast.

    Same can be said for any professional athlete.

    Exactly... So it doesn't matter whether we think somebody is worth it or not.

    Big time athletics can be shady. There are people with money that want to win. If you send a kid to the NBA or NFL, that kid down the road may very well donate money back to the school and the community.... For that, paying somebody $130k and their car payment and rent doesn't seem that crazy.

    I guess nobody follows how much high school football coaches in Texas get paid... This is same ish, different toilet. Big whoop.

    I know. I just find it sad that the high school game has devolved to being about nothing but money as well.

    PS: I hope for the school's sake they are RENTING that house, right SOULja? ;-)

    College and Pro sports are just a little bit more important though. I would definately say those coaches are worth over 1 mil.
