    ISU better get the check book out. Kingsbury to get $2 Million BASE

    I can't believe what TTU is doing. $2 Million BASE for a coach with 3 years experience period. Who is running that crazy house?

    Bruce Feldman ‏@BFeldmanCBS Three yrs ago Kliff Kingsbury was making under $20k at Houston. Now he's making $2 million a year at Tech.

    Tech is desperate to not fall behind. BU and TCU both look like better programs right now. Texas pride at work there.

    You don't pay $2M a year to rebuild. KK but win right away or he'll be gone. He might have the kids to do it but I'm not sure if he has the ability as a head coach to win consistently. We'll see.

    I am curious on what some of you think that if push came to shove, what could and what would ISU pay Coach Rhoads to stay? 3 million per year or higher?

    The offseason Big 12 coaching changes are going in ISU's favor.

    That's nuts, save that cash for a year or two down the road if he has some success, not right out of the chute.

    If we get 7-8 wins before a bowl game next season, I could see 3. But he just got a new contract. You would have to be a bit of a cheese dick to leverage more money when it hasn't even been a year yet.

    How does one go about getting one of these jobs. 20K to 2mil is a much better raise than I'll get this year. Is there a brochure I can read?

    Notably it's only a four year contract. You could buy him out relatively cheap if he's a failure.

    Re: ISU better get the check book out. Kingsbury to get $2 Million BASE

    With the huge increases in revenue associated with conference re-alignments and new TV contracts, I see coaching contracts to continue to escalate rapidly. The number of players is fixed and the scholarship costs are relatively fixed. The main places to spend the added money would be facilities or coaching salaries.

    It is similar to MLB where very average players are getting multi-year contracts at $5 million or more.
