The Ol' Ball Coach's Payroll

USA Today posted the compensation figures of Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches, which Land Grant Holy Land discusses nicely. Keep in mind schools exempt from the Freedom of Information Act are excluded (i.e. USC, Stanford, Notre Dame, Penn State, etc.) and this is 2013 data, not including raises for next year.

Here is a summary of total staff compensation. Is Clemson getting its money's worth?
