Right, and Crennel made what? 1M? How much do the guys in Jaxsonville or Carolina get? Was Shurmur making anything in Cleveland? The dude in Tennessee? Fisher makes 5.7M according to Forbes. Andy Reid = Bill Belichick money now. That's something you find acceptable, I find it laughably dumb.
The NFL average is higher than I expected, but in no state of the world should a fired coach who went 12-20 his last two years get the highest paycheck in the League. Hunt's money or not.
