Alabama strength coach Scott Cochran will make $525,000 this season, reports USA Today.

Cochran received a raise on his previous salary, which was (a still comfortable) $420,000. Cochran will now earn in salary what every athlete at Alabama earns, times infinity plus $525,000.

We can only assume Cochran received this raise because he used his strength to threaten the Alabama board of trustees. Seriously, $525,000 for a strength coach?! At least spend that kind of money on a fancy barbershop inside the practice facility or something.

What does a college team need such an expensive strength coach for, anyway? It’s not like it’s a professional sport or something like that.
