San Diego State is giving football coach Brady Hoke a fat contract.

According to Steve Berkowitz, Hoke will make $1 million annually, and then will have increases of $50,000 every year over the five-year deal. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

That’s more money than previous head coach Rocky Long made.

I’m not really sure what Hoke did to earn this kind of money. Rocky Long was very successful as a head coach with the Aztecs.

He was worth every penny of his $900,000 salary. He was probably worth more. The man won games with the Aztecs.

What has Hoke done to justify making a seven-figure salary? He flamed out in spectacular fashion at Michigan, and has done nothing to prove he’s an elite coach.

This is kind of Hoke’s last chance to be a head coach. If it fails with the Aztecs, then it’s over for Hoke.

Yet, he seems to have received a very favorable contract from SDSU. We’ll have to see if he lives up to the price, but it’s a bit mind-boggling to hand him that kind of cash to be the head football coach.
