    If I were paid $550,000 annually and lived in Hawaii I would consider my life very successful in monetary terms. Every coach in DI football is vastly overpaid in reality. But that's the nature of college football and big business. If you can't figure out a way to live off of half a million dollars a year than there is something wrong with you. Congrats to Chow and I hope he thoroughly enjoys Hawaii and the remainder of his life.

    That's possible, but I also wouldn't be surprised if UH drove a hard bargain for someone with no head coaching experience. Plus, I believe he is still being paid UCLA buyout money, but don't quote me on that.

    For once you are probably right.

    I wonder if chow agreed to take less so he could pay more to get a better staff? I'm not being sarcastic about this but I am really wondering why he would take so much less than what his predecessor was paid? I wonder if they simply have a budget and he feels he needs that money to pay better assistant coaches?

    That just seems like a very low salary for the head coach of a D1 football program. Maybe he simply doesn't care about the $ as he has already made a bundle so as long as they didn't insult him he was willing to work for less?
