KU pays Charlie Weis more per victory than any other FBS school

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The University of Kansas shelled out some big bucks for their only win of the 2012 football season.

According to an analysis of college football coaches' compensation done by USA Today Sports, the $2.5 million paid to head coach Charlie Weis is more than any other coach's per-win income.

"Kansas is the only NCAA Bowl Subdivision school among the top five in cost inefficiency in each of the past three seasons," the USA Today Article, by Steve Berkowitz and Jodi Upton, states.

But KU isn't necessarily getting the least cost-effective deal. Southern Mississippi had zero wins this year, and according to USA Today, paid head coach Ellis Johnson $790,000 in salary.
