Georgia Tech will become what is believed to be the first college to outsource its ticket operations for football and men's basketball, the Sports Business Journal's John Lombardo and Michael Smith report.
The ACC gets the nod as the highest-paying conference among offensive coordinators, thanks to Florida State's Jimbo Fisher earning a hefty $630,375 salary as FSU's offensive coordinator/head coach-in-waiting.
Although FSU's Bobby Bowden makes about $1 million a year less than Meyer, Bowden is still the ACC's highest-paid head coach. Also, FSU has the distinction of being the nation's only school with four assistants - Fisher, defensive coordinator Mickey Andrews, linebackers coach Chuck Amato and offensive line coach Rick Trickett - making more than $300,000.
Sports Illustrated's Andy Staples with an excellent piece on why making the coaches poll anonymous is a ridiculous idea:
The AFCA decided to keep the final regular-season coaches' poll ballots secret. The change, which was unanimously passed by the 16-member board, starts in '10. If coaches don't want to be held accountable, they shouldn't be part of the process
More to come.
