Talk about bad timing: On the same day the State Regents for Higher Education approved a 9.7 tuition increase for OU students, the university announced major salary increases for a slate of OU coaches.
Sherri Coale, women's basketball coach: $250,000 raise
Jeff Capel, men's basketball coach: $100,000 raise
Bob Stoops, football head coach: $25,000 raise (but his previous salary was already $2.6 million)
Brent Venables, football defensive coordinator: $50,000
Kevin Wilson, football offensive coordinator: $40,000
Joe Castiglione, athletic director: $30,000
AltTulsa's take: Draw your own conclusions.
