Paterno's Salary Is Now Public

Friday, November 30, 2007 ·

Joe Paterno earns $512,664 annually as a base salary coaching Penn State.

According to the State Employees' Retirement System, Paterno will earn a base salary of $512,664 for this year. That number does not include compensation for television and apparel contracts or other miscellaneous sources of income.

While his base salary is nowhere near what the highest-paid college football coaches earn - Alabama's Nick Saban tops out at $4 million a year - Paterno's total income is likely comparable to those of the other big-name coaches of his stature.

What's the big deal about how much money he makes? Penn State football still brings in $30 million in profit every year.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
