4-6 2011 Salary:
This is where buyouts and budgets begin to make things really tricky. In 2011 Maryland brought in Edsall to replace reigning ACC coach of the year Ralph Freidgen, who went 9-4 with the Terps the year before. Edsall's new team went 2-10 last year and are not playing much better this season. The trouble is that firing Edsall would cost Maryland around $8 million, a lot to pay for a cash-strapped school that has cut sports programs just to get under budget. Then again, leaving Edsall out there for four more years may all but cripple what little profit Maryland football can still generate. (AP Photo) More From Forbes
