Faculty Salaries Up But Not As Much As Coaches

UNDATED (AP) -- College professors have had their biggest salary increase in five years -- but most still make a lot less than do big-time college football coaches.

According to an annual survey, salaries for full-time college faculty rose almost four percent this year, the biggest increase since 2002.

The American Association of University Professors says salaries of full professors rose a little more than four percent, slightly better than the increases for lower ranks. The A-A-U-P says the faculty increases pale in comparison to those given to college presidents and Division-One football coaches, which the group says shows misplaced priorities.

According to the survey, salaries for full professors at N-C-A-A Division-One-A schools ranged up to 135-thousand dollars. Head football coaches averaged more than 900-thousand.
