No Arkansas coaches were given giant pay raises this week. The UA trustees had their annual summer call to approve salaries above line-item maximums yesterday. The totals approved include maximum pay to each individual - mostly coaches and athletics department officials - and includes any potential bonuses.

In the past, people have seen this list and assumed coaches were getting massive raises that weren’t being reported. That’s not the case. This simply gives the university an authorization on how much it can spend on salaries in the fiscal year.
