    Was bored in class and found this...

    "Word is Iowa State is paying its new offensive coordinator Robert McFarland $300,000. He was the head coach of Stephen F. Austin. He and new ISU coach Gene Chizik have worked together in the past. ..."

    Does this seem right, I don't know what the average is, how much did Cotton get paid??

    somehow Tony Alford got $198k, must be more incentives in Barney's pay?

    To get a current head coach to come be your OC, you've got to pony up the big bucks. $300,000 sounds about right.

    That being said, McFarland better work his *** off to earn it.

    According to the state employee salary database, Cowboy Cotton made $171,762.50 last year including $15,793.42 for travel expenses. With the $1.5m Chizik has available, he can afford to pay his oc/dc higher.

    Sounds about right. I was thinking maybe $400,000 to attract a name coordinator, and that figure sounds about right for a head coach at a lower level to take it.

    Then Barney really was paid $171k. I think $200km is about normal for the OC in most leagues. Skaldany as OC will probably get about 150k at Central Florida. CF is on the rise. They should be much better in five years.

    Cost of living is quite a bit higher in Florida, also.

    If its true that McFarland is getting $300K to come here, he'd better be all that and a bag of chips. I'm not terribly impressed by his resume......although I trust Chizik to make the right hires, when I saw how much Pollard was willing to pony up for assistants I figured that we would get some big names from some big programs. Not so much, yet.

    Actually Florida is a pretty cheap place to live as they have no state income tax. The cost of living in Tampa Bay is only 1.3% higher than living in Des Moines. (This according to the monster.com cost of living calculator)
