    The average salary for a rookie NFL head coach is between $2-2.5 million. Kubiak got $2 million/year on his first contract. The exception is a college coach lured to the NFL (ala Harbaugh).

    Found this list of NFL HC salaries for the 2007-8 season. I would suspect that these salaries, especially those with previous HC experience have significantly escalated by the 2010-11 season.........and probably logarithmically.

    Bud still certainly isn't entertaining anyone that would challenge the "low ball" option. And, BTW, there are coordinators that are bringing in over $2.5 million/year.

    Well Bud will go inside of the organization. He wants to hire for cheap. That is to nobody's surprise.

    Isn't that about how much we're paying Phillips?

    That's 2.5 million over 3 years.

    ESPN reported that Phillips was the highest paid D coordinator.

    .

    However, this couldn't be correct. ESPN also reported that Dom Capers 2007 contract with the Dolphins was higher than that.

    The Miami Dolphins have reached an agreement with defensive coordinator Dom Capers on a deal that will make him the highest-paid assistant coach in the NFL.

    Of course, IIRC Phillips was to be paid $3 million for the 2011 year by Dallas. So that took some burden off of McNair in his offer to entice him to Houston.........since he would still get the difference paid to him by Jerry.
