Auburn makes Kevin Steele the highest paid DC at $2.5 million per year
quote:

Sources tell ESPN that Kevin Steele’s new 3-year deal as @AuburnFootball’s defensive coordinator will pay him $2.5 million per year, making him the highest-paid DC in college football. Tigers have finished top 20 nationally in scoring D each of Steele’s four seasons at Auburn.

Crazy land. Doubt the football pay model will last much longer

That's what Aranda made last year. Interested to see what we pay our next DC.

Jesus. There's no coordinator that is worth that much money.

Wow. I saw he signed an extension, but didn't see the contract. He deserves that salary more than Gus deserves his.

It’s crazy that he’s doing so well at Auburn, his defenses there look awesome and he makes great adjustments. His LSU tenure was so awful, no clue how he turned it around so well, good for him

He has really recovered well since giving up 70 to West Virginia in the Orange Bowl.

NFL starters on the D-Line helped.

He’s had some pretty good talent on that defense to work with since he’s been at Auburn, especially when you have a DL like they had, it’s pretty easy to be that dominant on defense

Maybe they should've waited to see what he can do without first rounders on the DL

Ole Miss fans wouldn't get it but a national title is priceless. I don't care if we were paying Brady and Aranda $10mil each this past year.

The new HC will have a good DC already in place when he's hired

Yeah he is. That defense is what has kept that team afloat the last couple of years. If anything, Gus should be footing part of that from his salary.

HE actually graduated the year before Steele was here

I think the 2015 defense's biggest problem was a total lack of a decent DLine.

We had (JR.) Tre-Davious White and (SO.) Jamal Adams in the secondary.
We had (SR.) Debo Jones and (JR.) Kendell Beckwith in the LB corps.

But the DLine was not great, young Key and Godchaux, Lewis Neal and Christian LaCouture.

Auburn contract negotiators are stupid. This team has lost at least 4 games SIX years in a row and pay their staff like they’ve won national championships.
