That makes him the fifth-highest-paid coach in the Big 12. He's the 28th-highest-paid coach nationally. That's $1,050,600 per win. And it's a substantial pay increase from what Gill was making as coach at Buffalo: $401,300 in his final season.
Gill is making more than Mike Gundy, whose Oklahoma State Cowboys are undefeated and ranked No. 2 in the nation, at $2,100,000. But you gotta figure that won't be for long.
Gill also makes more than Texas Tech's Tommy Tuberville ($2,059,000), Kansas State's Bill Snyder ($1,925,000), Baylor's Art Briles ($1,549,346) and Iowa State's Paul Rhoads ($1,150,000). A lot of men here will be asking for raises soon.
The top four are, of course, Texas' Mack Brown ($5,193,500), Oklahoma's Bob Stoops ($4,075,000), Missouri's Gary Pinkel ($2,700,000) and Texas A&M's Mike Sherman ($2,201,000). Seeing Gill in the top five is ... mind-blowing.
