Sooners co-coordinators to get a fiscal bump

Josh Heupel

While they have yet to coach a single regular-season down in their new jobs, two members of Bob Stoops‘ Oklahoma coaching staff are already in line to receive fairly substantial bumps in pay.

According to the Daily Oklahoman, co-offensive coordinators Josh Heupel and Jay Norvell, pending approval from the school’s board of regents, will receive an increase in pay for 2011.

Both coordinators will make $330,000 this year.  Heupel made $250,000 as OU’s quarterbacks coach last year, while Norvell earned $255,000 as wide receivers coach/assistant offensive coordinator.

Heupel and Norvell were promoted by Stoops after Kevin Wilson left to become Indiana’s head coach.  Wilson earned $430,000 as OU’s coordinator last season.

    When you have college coordinators approaching their lower end NFL counterparts in salary, you’ve got a fundamental problem with college athletics.

    I don’t think paying a coordinator over $300,000 is a wise investment before they ever coordinate a game for your school. You’re just asking for it to blow up in your face.
