In 2010, the combined income of Oklahoma State's football coaches amounted to $4.460 million. Last year, it was $4.870 million.

This year, combining the income of head man Mike Gundy ($3.275 million) and his nine assistants, OSU will pay a total of $6.280 million to its football coaches.

Last season's Big 12 championship, 12-1 record and No. 3 national ranking resulted in substantial pay increases for Cowboy assistant coaches.

According to figures released to the Tulsa World by the university, offensive coordinator Todd Monken received a 50 percent bump in salary. Last year, he made $400,000. He collects $600,000 this year, making him by far the highest-paid assistant in program history.
