12.Sep.2014 Beaver Coaches’ Salaries
Posted here in Oregon Live.
My issues with it are Banker and Garrett making 505k and 320k, respectively. Why is Banker worth half a million? Can anyone explain how/why other than the fact he’s been there a while and is a Riley insider? And Garrett shows up in year 1 and makes more than every assistant but Baker? Why? Because he had NFL ties? Because he’s a Riley insider? Landsdorf’s salary for that same job was 280k, and that was after 9 years. Side note, but I find it interesting that Eli Manning is absolute garbage with Langsdorf coaching him. Sure, it could be his age or issues with personnel, etc. Brennen and Brasfield seem slightly underpaid and under appreciated, relative to the other coaches’ salaries.
Bruce Read makes a lot for a special teams coach and it’s probably not justified, but I’ll say this: kick coverage has been good under him. This is just from memory, but I don’t remember any return TDs against us under Read, and most kickoffs don’t get beyond the 25. Do you guys remember ever being disappointed over punt or kickoff coverage?
