Also, The Atlantic is not a reliable source. It prints garbage like this:
"Football at Premont cost about $1,300 a player. Math, by contrast, cost just $618 a student."
even though everyone at the school takes math, very few play football, and not everyone involved in football is a player.
Atlantic may or may not be a reliable source. What about this? A coach is given a whooping $7,004,000 salary.
Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh is in his first year with the Wolverines and sits behind Saban with a $7,004,000 total pay.
