Compare Doc's salary with other schools from the MAC, C-USA, Mountain West and SunBelt where the cost of living is comparable to the cost of living in Huntington WV. When Tennessee and Arkansas hired coaches the last few years Doc or any of his assistants phones rang. Doc makes $600,000 in WV. in WV on 600,000 Doc has a very good lifestyle. Doc has made almost 2 million dollars in his three seasons at Marshall. Doc could quit today and never have to work another day in his life if he didn't blow all his money. The Coordinators are making $170,000 in WV Still living a very good lifestyle not doing without much. Even the position coaches at $100,000 are living pretty good providing for their families at a higher level than the majority in WV and they are not forced to have to get a real job. Any of the three jobs listed and their salaries is a darn good living in WV. Cost of living here is as low as it is anywhere in the country. And all are making well above the average per capita in WV for coaching football.

They have a larger financial pool to pull money from for football than Marshall University has for probably the entire University Academics and Sports. Like I said to compare Marshall coaches you need to compare them with coaches in the MAC, SunBelt, C-USA and Mountain West.Tennessee has 100,000 fans in the stands for ever home football game. Marshall is lucky to have 25,000.Those two programs you are trying to compare Marshall to has unlimited resources and money. Marshall does not. They both might play at the same FBS level but they are by no means even close to being on the same level. UWV is not even on the same level as what they can pat assistant coaches as Tennessee. Why not just compare Marshall to Notre Dame and Ohio State next.
