"We felt that as we made that move, we had to take people who do a good job and get them at least somewhat in the middle of the league,"

And the Pac-12 is still one of the lowest-paying of the major conferences as far as coaches' salaries. 10 of the SEC schools pay their head coaches more than the highest reported salary in the Pac-12 (Lane Kiffin's is expected to be the highest, but USC does not disclose that information as they are a private school).

Well, I don't think anyone can complain about a $525,000 raise. Most pepole would be happy to make $525,000, let alone get a raise in that amount. I'd be happy with a $5000 raise. That said, it is the nature of the beast and Wittingham deserves it as much as (or more than) the next guy.

This is a great reward for his loyalty. Lots of higher paying jobs were orçares to coach whit, but why leave when your school is as loyalty to you as you are to them.
Congrats to coach whit, we hope you stick with us for a long time!

He could have made more at Tennessee. Glad he stayed here in Utah. He has brought a lot of money to the University. For the amount of revenue he has helped and will help the athletic program bring in, no one can complain about his salary being too high.
