The debate on whether college athletes should get paid or not continues. But one thing is for sure, college coaches get paid and if they're in the Lone Star State they get paid big time.

Everyone knows that the king of all sports in Texas is football, so it comes as no surprise that football coaches get paid multiple times higher than that of any other sport.

The University of Texas head coach Tom Herman gets around $5 million a year, that's a lot of dough for a job that yes comes with a lot of pressure and hours, but in the end, is a dream come true for the 44-year-old.

Football assistants get paid more than some of the schools head coaches for the other sports, but their salary is nothing to sneeze at.

Here's a list of some the salaries of coaches around our great state from the Fort Worth Star-telegram.
