Ron English was the 8th highest-paid MAC football coach in 2009
I just came across this blog giving a list of FBS head coach salaries for 2009. No surprise that Ron English is near the bottom, at #111 (tied with Stan Parrish of Ball State and Rob Akey of Idaho), at $250,000. He was a totally unproven first-year head coach at a perennially-struggling football program. What did surprise me a little is that he was above three other MAC coaches: J.D. Brookhart of Akron, Mike Haywood of Miami University, and Doug Martin of Kent State.
