Arizona football coach Kevin Sumlin stands to make an insane amount of money over the next few years.

ESPN’s Darren Rovell tweeted Tuesday, “$11 million: What Arizona will pay Kevin Sumlin to coach for the next four seasons. $10.5 million: What Texas A&M is paying Kevin Sumlin NOT TO COACH. Entire payment is due in 9 days.”

Earning $21.5 million over the next four years isn’t that bad of a payday. It’s especially not too bad when you consider the fact that he’s getting $10.5 million to not coach Texas A&M. That’s how you know you’ve hit it big. You’re getting paid more money in the next nine days to not coach than most people will make in their lives.

I need an agent like that, and I hope Sumlin is paying him extremely well.
