State Troopers for College Football Coaches?

20 posts in this topic

Who is paying for these State Troopers to act as Secret Service for college football coaches? (Tax Payers). Why do guys like Les Miles and Bobby Bowden need security at HOME? Don't these guys make enough money to hire their own security?

big time college coaches make more money than the governor in most circumstances and are state employees. They are high target employees who in most cases outside the state are more well known than the governor. At the end of the day is not a big expenditure to devote a few hours of a state trooper making $50k/year to protect a multi million dollar/year high profile/easily targeted/on TV all the time state employee.

Why can't they get their own security? Almost all of them make over a million dollars a year. And I'm sorry I don't understand security at home. What is going to happen to Joe Paterno at Happy Valley?

I'm not paying taxes in those states, so I don't care.

You pay for Butch Davis, Tom O'Brien, Jim Grobe, and David Cutcliffe's security. Plus all of the lower level colleges too.

I just don't understand why guys who make well over a million dollars a year need state troopers for security. Why do they need them at all at HOME and why can't they pay for their own security?

I don't ever remember a fan attacking a coach on any level. Let alone a home fan.

    • Ross for me. Davis is good, but the same way Ross' previous injuries give people pause, so should Davis' competition. You can only play who's on your schedule, but Davis played against inferior talent and, for the most part, got shutdown against good schools (Wisconsin, OSU). He did dominate the other schools so I'm not saying he won't be a good pro. I just think this T.O. talk and saying he's going to beast out could be premature.  Davis last game he was shut down by Wisconsin and then, due to injury, hasn't run at the combine or his pro day. For me, that's a little risky too at #8.  I wouldn't take Ross at 8, but what we need based off of our roster is a player of Ross' abilities and strengths, IMO. I wouldn't be mad with Davis, but I prefer Ross and would not want either at #8.
    • In kindergarten we had weekly job theme where you could play pretend and be a worker or a customer. One week they had a salon type deal going on. My parents never instilled any sort of gender identity within me, so I went and got my hair did. I didn't know I was a boy and wasn't supposed to do that. The girls didn't think it was weird either.. Never turned gay or tranny.     My hair looked fuging luxurious too, btw.
