It would be pretty sweet to be University of Florida football coach Urban Meyer.
On Monday, Florida gave Meyer, who has won two BCS Championships in the past three years, a raise and a new six-year contract. He now receives $4 million annually, making him the highest-paid coach in the Southeastern Conference.
It made me wonder … who are the highest-paid coaches in 2009? And where do Big 12 coaches rank?
Going into the season, here are the top 4 in the country, organized by what they make per year:
•1. Pete Carroll, USC: $4.4 million
•2. Charlie Weis, Notre Dame: $4.2 million
