It should come as no surprise that when USA Today released its list of FBS coaches’ salaries, that Florida’s Urban Meyer was near the top. Only three coaches – Alabama’s Nick Saban, Texas’ Mack Brown and Oklahoma’s Bob Stoops – make more than Meyer.
Florida released the details of Meyer’s contract, which he signed on Oct. 1, 2009, last week. Here’s where Meyer falls in the SEC.

|South Carolina||Steve Spurrier||$2,032,500||$1,000,000|
|Mississippi State||Dan Mullen||$1,208,295||NA|
