New Florida football coach Billy Napier is reportedly making a ton of money.

According to Mark Long, Napier’s seven-year contract with the Gators is worth a staggering $51.8 million over the duration of the deal. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

He’ll make $7.1 million during the 2022 season and he’s the fifth highest-paid coach in the conference.

That is a hell of a lot of money for a coach who has never coached a P5 team in his life. That’s a whole lot of money!

There is a ton of hype surrounding Napier, and fans are very excited about the fact he’s coaching in Gainesville.

However, cutting off a brick worth more than $50 million would seem like a monster payday for a guy who might not deserve it just yet.

Now, if Napier starts cranking out wins with the Gators, I can promise there will be a lot more money where his contract came from.

He’ll make more money than he could ever spend, but it just seems early right now.
