    The idea seems to be gaining traction. It's hard to imagine Vrabel leaving a good NFL gig to beg 17 year olds to play for him but it's his alma mater, and Ohio State could probably double whatever Amy Adams Strunk is able to pay.

    Nick Saban is the highest paid college coach at 11.7 million, and Vrabel is making over 9 million a year with the Titans, so I highly doubt Ohio State is going to pay double what the Titans can. They aren’t even an SEC school. I also highly doubt they are going to fire their current coach with a 45-4 record. Stop spreading nonsense.

    Where do you see Vrabel's salary? I've seen one website cite 9 mil seemingly from nowhere while every other article says his salary is unknown. I kind of doubt he's making 9 million even after his extension.

    Looking at other NFL Salaries, I would say he’s making AT LEAST that after the latest extension. McVay makes like 18 million a year.

    Vrabel isn't leaving the Titans unless he's forced out. And even then, I doubt he heads to the collegiate level. NFL head coaches don't typically go to the college level unless they get fired from the NFL.

    It won't happen coming from a Buckeye fan.

    Vrabel left for the NFL because of the grind and time away from family during the recruiting process.

    Brian Hartline, whom is the #2 recruiter in the nation, will get the opportunity first before Vrabel

    It’s not even remotely gaining traction. One guy wrote it as an opinion piece and people wrote it was absurd. That’s not traction.

    I assume this is where you saw the $9 mil/year

    This says straight up unknown
    Who are the highest paid coaches in the NFL this season?

    This says annual salary of $3.025 mil/year

    This repeats the $3 mil

    This states he has a net worth of appx $10 mil and that was formulated into an estimated salary between $3-$5 mil/year

    This is some British rag that also states appx $3 mil/year but they may actually be referencing another site

    So overall, not really sure what his salary is. Between him and the team, it seems they’ve kept it under wraps for whatever reason. Hard to know if OSU can beat that amount, but I’m not sure that money is all he’d leave for.

    For the record, I don’t believe he’s considering this.

    how does one go from successful NFL career to successful NFL HC and only have $10m... dont get me wrong that is tons of $s but seems off bigly to me.

    lets see 14 years in NFL... call that at least $10m probably $20m or more

    lets see 5 years HC call it $2m a year... OK guess not as bad as I thought but still should be worth minimum $20m probably $30m or more

    Not sure how net worth is calculated or how those couple years in between player to NFL coach would factor towards the final estimate.

    I think you’re right on his appx money earned over his playing career, I do t know what a positional coach at a college earns and DC in Houston for that 1 year was probably substantially less than HC.

    Despite the “secrecy” around his current salary, it seems like OSU could beat the estimates but I doubt by much.

    Now if he can get the Lombardi, his salary should increase pretty greatly. Coaches should maybe have that incentive written in?
