Pete Carroll would appear to be the highest-paid college football coach in the land, according to tax returns filed by USC.
For the 2006-07 academic year, Carroll's compensation was $4,436,386. Adam Rose of All Things Trojan reports that offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian's total compensation was $704,380.
Basketball coach Tim Floyd's deal totaled $1,101,111 and athletic director Mike Garrett was at $803,194.
By comparison, university president Steven Sample's compensation was listed at $978,579.
Because it is a private institution, USC has to list only the compensation of its highest-paid employees on returns. The school reported total revenue of $2.7 billion in 2006-07 and total expenses of $2.06 billion.
