We ran a cartoon last week on the absurdity of Texas A&M paying $76 million to head football coach Jimbo Fisher after firing him for his mediocre performance. This is what all that student loan money is going to pay for?
We ran into former Hall of Fame Notre Dame head coach Lou Holtz the other day at an America First Policy Institute gala dinner. Lou won the last national championship at Notre Dame back in 1988.
We joked with Lou that looking at the massive salary for Jimbo Fisher, he was 30 years ahead of his time. He told us that his top salary at ND was less than $150,000. He’d be making 100 times that amount today! Talk about inflation.
$76 Million for Jimbo
$150,000 for Lou
