    Well, this will thrill some of us. Others--not so much. Particularly after last weekend....

    OKLAHOMA CITY -- All nine of Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops' assistant coaches have been given raises for this football season.

    The university's regents voted Wednesday to approve $45,000 raises for defensive coordinator Brent Venables and offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson. Venables is set to make $440,000 this year, while Wilson will make $430,000.

    Quarterbacks coach Josh Heupel got the biggest bump, increasing his total pay from $200,000 to $250,000. Oklahoma's other three offensive assistants got raises of $20,000 while three defensive assistants will be paid about $16,500 more.

    Gives them little incentive to leave
    they would be hard pressed to make that as a mid major head coach

    Why would people be particularly "thrilled" about this?

    Stoops should make minimum wage

    Those salaries are nuts.

    Barry Switzer bragged back in the early 1980s that he once was able to collect over $100,000 in one year. What was his starting salary in 1973? $30,000? Something like that.

    We should pay them a fair wage and then pay them extremely large bonuses for what happens during the game. Like 5 grand a touchdown and 2 grand for sacks. ;)

    I'm growing a bushy beard and a mullet. Maybe the giants will let me pitch. ( I will draw the line at pony tails, tatooed taints, and 12 minute ninja exams)

    I still don't get it. 6-0 and nothing happens. Lose game seven and they get a raise? :confused:

    It was from the board of Regents. I believe it was also when they were to talk about it or their raises were due.

    We are 6-1. I see nothing wrong with the raises...but I would have waited till the end of the season first.
