And Kyle Whittingham is the highest paid state employee in Utah. Nothing shocking here. I think in all about five states, those who don't have big-time football/basketball programs, the highest paid state employee is either a basketball or football coach. Highest paid state employee of all states will John Calapari, UK basketball coach at 6 million a year.

Leach, Sarkisian, and Whittingham all have something in common besides being football coaches.

The article didn't mention that the new coach at Washington, former BSU coach, Chris Peterson, earns more than Sarkisian made.
