Sarkisian’s base salary for the 2021 season will be $5.2 million.

That’s a whole lot of money, folks! Steve Sarkisian is going to be sleeping in a bed made out of $100 bills with this deal.

Clearly, Texas was hellbent on hiring the Alabama OC because there’s no way you can turn down that kind of cash.

For a guy who hasn’t been a head coach since USC pushed him out the door several years ago, it’s truly a staggering amount of money.

He’s already among the highest-paid coaches in the sport. I guess Nick Saban’s program for rehabbing the career of failed head coaches has worked again!

In all seriousness, I’m pumped for Sark. He’s a great offensive mind, and he’s made an incredible comeback in the world of football. Now, he’s also rich! You love to see it!
