It is relative to the subset of the 32 employees who are paid to be the head coaches. It is also realtive that none of those 32 are normal paying while others are making 20MM. It is relatvie to that subset of employees and their given rolls. Are we talking about 8-8 now or performing better than 68% of your peers?
