Win or you get canned. Coaches are paid some big bucks. Some coaches make as much as $170,000.00 per year, plus other perks, no classe, free vehicle use, and other, win or hit the road, sad to say, football first, regular students ?????? Wonder why Ga. education ranks 49th in educationa acheivement.
