The Penn State coach will earn $512,664 in salary this year, the
Harrisburg (Pa.) Patriot-News reported Thursday. The State Employees'
Retirement System released Paterno's salary but didn't include other
compensation, such as money from television and apparel contracts, that
Paterno could earn.
In terms of what top notch coaches in college sports make today, JoePa's salary is rather paltry. Now, if you want to argue Paterno is no longer a top notch coach...
I kid, I kid! All hail, JoePa.
