Lovie Smith Tops In The NFL

Maybe I've read this some other time and forgot, but when I saw this it really surprised me.  Lovie Smith is the top paid coach in the NFL.  Huh?  Lovie Smith is the highest paid Head Coach in the National Football League?

Forbes magazine released a list of the Top 10 earning coaches;

1 - Phil Jackson - NBA, Lakers - 10 million

2 - Larry Brown - NBA, Bobcats - 7 million

3 - Mike D'Antoni - NBA, Knicks - 6 million

4 - Don Nelson - NBA, Warriors - 6 million

5 - Lovie Smith - NFL, Bears - 5.5 million

6 - Jeff Fisher - NFL, Titans - 5.5 million

7 - Doc Rivers - NBA, Celtics - 5.5 million

8 - Tom Coughlin - NFL, Giants - 5.5 million

9 - Bill Belichick - NFL, Patriots - 5 million

10 - Jim Mora - NFL, Seahawks - 5 million

Well, technically he's tied for the top spot, but seeing his name attached to that 5.5 million you have to think if the Bears don't rebound and head back to the playoffs there could be a change made.  After 2 straight disappointing seasons with no playoff appearances, will Jerry Angelo allow a 3rd to happen without consequence?
