College Football Coaches Score Jaw Dropping Raises in Realignment Chaos

College football realignment happens quickly and can change schools' athletic programs significantly

Many schools are upgrading from a lower football division (FCS) to a higher one (FBS) for financial benefits

Jacksonville State and Sam Houston State recently made this move, following other schools like James Madison, Liberty, and Coastal Carolina

Realignment began when Texas and Oklahoma moved to the SEC in 2021

This set off a chain reaction that affected conferences like the Big 12, AAC, and C-USA

Quick decisions and campus visits played a big role in these changes

Coaches often get big raises during realignment

Schools are aware they need to invest in football programs to stay competitive in higher divisions
