09:40 AM ET 07.21 | The trickle down from the Pac-12 Conference's new television deal is already being felt at UCLA, which has invested heavily in its football staff. Head Coach Jim Mora received a five-year, $11.235-million deal when he was hired in December. Athletic department officials expect UCLA to take in $17.6 million this year from television contracts, multimedia rights and apparel sales. The Pac-12 has a $3-billion television deal with Fox and ESPN. Mora could make another $750,000 per season in performance bonuses and a total of $700,000 over the life of his contract in retention bonuses. Also included in the contract are the use of two cars, a country club membership and a low-interest home loan. Athletic department officials upped the ante for assistant coaches as well, with a payroll of $2.08 million, a significant bump from $1.645 million last season.

Too much money being thrown around college football.
The current bid to host the new Champions Bowl is $80,0000,000 ...
Tickets for Michigan vs. 'Bama in Jerryworld are $500 with alumni discount.
The average fan can't afford a ticket anymore.
This sucks.

Or, having 2nd tier coaches nets you a sub .500 record. :)

USC pays about twice what UCLA does for HC, and about triple to coord and assistants. Until they upgrade, they are what they are, just playing little league.
