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.
