...So What’s He Going to Do With All That Money?

Well...we can think of a few things.

Dan Davis

So Dave Aranda has a brand new contract and a fancy new Associate Head Coach title, in addition to being to being defensive coordinator. He is now, of course, the highest paid assistant coach in college football, and while his offensive counterpart at LSU may pass him up shortly, for now he should celebrate his baller status.

So what does the highest paid assistant coach in college football buy? I have no idea. However, between flooding and assorted employment challenges over the last year and a half, I can easily think of a few ideas:

Panasonic Real Pro Ultra Massage Chair EP-MA73

For about $8,000, scout those bowl opponent protections in the finest of comfort. This thing will basically massage your entire body, AND it’s voice activated. There are full-body options, heated massage rollers, an airbag massage and even a 3D Mechanical Massage, which sounds awesome.

Oh, and it reclines too!

Kees van der Westen Espresso Machine

I mean the chair’s gonna relax you some, so how about a jolt to keep the film session moving. I bet he could even share this with Coach O. Only a smooth $20K.

Al Czervik’s Yacht

Okay, maybe this is just to make Director of Football Ops Derek Ponamsky jealous... Still, this 60-footer features a master stateroom with a queen bed, guest cabin with two twin beds — separate bathrooms for each room of course — a galley with a cooktop, fridge and icemaker.

Diamond Encrusted Bluetooth Headset

Look, coaches have to travel for recruiting, and they’ll still need to use the phone. Naturally, the responsible thing is to use a hands-free getup in the car. But...should you accidentally forget to take it off when you stop at that five-star linebacker’s house...hey dress to impress, right?

Diamond-Encrusted Gameboy

Tetris has a really calming effect on some people. Lets you find your zen.

Hand-Stiched Hermes Baseball Glove

I mean, you never know when you’re going to stop by the Box and take in a game during the spring.

The eleMMent Palazzo Mobile Home

Jim Harbaugh and Brian Kelly can show up at recruits’ houses in all the team-branded big-rigs they want. Let’s see them top this bad boy.
