USA Today: Narduzzi 42nd-highest paid head coach

Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi is the 42nd-highest-paid head coach in the country, according to a recent report by USA Today.

Narduzzi earned $3.018 million in the 2016 season, according to the report, which uses Pennsylvania’s Right-to-Know Law report.

Pitt’s status as a state-affiliated university makes the school exempt from FOIA requests, which prevents news outlets from acquiring more recent information.

According to the list, Narduzzi is the eighth-highest paid coach in the ACC, behind Dabo Swinney of Clemson ($6.205 million), Willie Taggert of Florida State ($5 million), Mark Richt of Miami (4.058 million), Justin Fuente of Virginia Tech ($4 million), Bobby Petrino of Louisville ($3.98 million), Bronco Mendenhall of Virginia ($3.55 million) and Paul Johnson of Georgia Tech ($3.06 million).

Regionally, James Franklin of Penn State ($4.8 million) and Dana Holgorsen of ($3.605 million) both make more than Narduzzi.

Narduzzi signed a new seven-year extension last December. He is in his fourth year with the program and has a 23-20 overall record.
