Coaches at the top of the college football world make a good living.

However, not all college football salaries are created equal.

The highest-paid head coach in college football in 2021 is Alabama's Nick Saban at $9,753,221, over $9 million more than the lowest-paid FBS head coach in ULM's Terry Bowden ($430,000).

Between college football's 10 highest-paid coaches in 2021, they will collectively take home just north of $78.65 million.
