The Worst-Value College Football Coaches

Posted: 01/06/11 01:18 PM ET

On Tuesday, we published a list of the ten Division 1 head football coaches who provide their schools with the best "value," based on a calculation that balances the team's on-field performance with the coach's monetary compensation.

On the other end of the spectrum, there are the coaches who are of little relative value to their schools, based on the amount of money they pocket for the number of victories they (don't) bring home.

See below the ten college football coaches who, mathematically speaking, don't pull their weight -- and let us know what you think in the comments section.

For on methodology, see here -- and scroll down for a complete table of data.

Notable: Last year the University of Memphis had to cut $26 million from its budget and last March the university’s faculty senate recommended that the school stop subsidizing the athletic department.
