Nice payday

It's a good day to be an assistant on Clemon's football team. 

The Clemson board of trustees on Friday approved $150,000 raises for Elliott and Scott, who will now make $1 million annually.

The university is expected to wait until later this year to increase head coach Dabo Swinney's annual compensation of $6 million.

How about the defensive coaches? 

Tigers defensive coordinator Brent Venables was the second-highest-paid assistant in the Football Bowl Subdivision this past season with a $2.2 million salary, according to a database compiled by USA Today, giving the Tigers three assistants making more than $1 million.

Being a college coach can really pay the bills.
