USA Today released its annual list of how much money college football coaches are making, and Hurricanes coach Al Golden ranked 46th among the 119 the newspaper was able to get information on.
Golden, signed through Feb. 1, 2020, is making $2.148 million this season, less than at least seven other coaches in the ACC. Seven schools weren’t represented in the chart: ACC schools Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Boston College were among them.
The ACC coaches USA Today reported as making more money than Golden: FSU’s Jimbo Fisher ($2.75 million), N.C. State’s Dave Doeren ($2.555M), Clemson’s Dabo Swinney ($2.550M), Virginia Tech’s Frank Beamer ($2.541M), Georgia Tech’s Paul Johnson ($2.515M), Wake Forest’s Jim Grobe ($2.251M) and Virginia’s Mike London ($2.189M).
• While Hurricanes cornerback Tracy Howard said he’s sure he and his teammates would welcome a rematch with Florida State in the ACC title game, he said the focus for them has solely been Virginia Tech this week.
• Virginia Tech won its first three ACC games and didn’t turn the ball over once. But in the Hokies’ losses to Duke and Boston College the last two weeks they turned it over four times in each.
