USC football: Kiffins came at a high price, report says

Are the Kiffins a $6-million coaching combo?

USC-logo HBO’s "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel," which begins airing a piece about USC coach Lane Kiffin on Tuesday, reports that Kiffin is earning $4 million, his father Monte, the Trojans' assistant head coach for defense, "around" $2 million. No source is cited for those figures.

USC, as a private institution, is not required to publicly report coaches’ salaries. An athletic department spokesman declined to comment.

Former Trojans coach Pete Carroll reportedly earned $4.4 million in total compensation during the 2006-07 fiscal year, which made him the highest-paid private university employee in the United States for that time, according to the Chronicle of Higher Education.
