Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News has an interesting take today on the salaries of the head coaches in the Pac-10. Here it is.
Wilner lists the salaries in terms of approximate guaranteed annual compensation, and also provides a ranking of dollars to wins value, giving UW coach Tyrone Willingham a D. Willingham ranks third in salary at $1.47 million a year in Wilner's compilation.
Wilner points out that Willingham will lose "hundreds of thousands of dollars'' in deferred compensation should he not remain the coach through five years.
You can read Willingham's contract here and the section Wilner is referring to is 4p. It's tough to figure out exactly how much Willingham would stand to lose because it's hard to know for certain if he has reached some of the academic and administrative incentives. But he would lose more than $500,000 by any conservative reading of it.
