SABAN SABAN SABAN DOLLAR SABAN DOLLAR

USA Today updated their coaches compensation database today and the SEC continues to pay well, accounting for three of the top five salaries in all of college football. Alabama's Nick Saban remains the Jay Z of college football, collecting a cool $5,545,852 per year in salary and other incentives. New Arkansas coach Bret Bielema checks in third, although his compensation is a bit skewed as it includes money paid to Wisconsin as part of his buyout.

Urban Meyer is the top paid coach in the Big Ten, pulling in $4.608 million per year while eligible for $550,000 in bonus money. Michigan's Brady Hoke is 8th on the list at $4.154 million per season, while Iowa's Kirk Ferentz – Big Ten Coach of Forever – hauls in $3.985 million for whatever it is he does in Iowa City.

As always, the full list is fascinating, if for nothing else than to compare who is overpaid and who is underpaid relative to team performance. Take it away, Twitter:
