Hawaii State Salaries 2012: Highest Paid at University of Hawaii
It comes as no surprise that the University of Hawaii's highest paid employee is in the athletic department.
UH Manoa football coach Greg McMackin is the highest paid employee with a $1.1 million base salary. He earns about $620,000 more than the next-highest paid employee across the university's 10 campuses.
The names on the list of the 10 highest-paid university employees haven't changed since last year. But seven of their base salaries have increased slightly.
McMackin and the dean of the medical school still make more than the president of the 10-campus public university system. And all 10 earn more than the highest paid state employees outside of the university system.
McMackin is also the highest paid football coach in the Western Athletic Conference, according to a November report by USA Today. Mack Brown, coach of the Texas Longhorns, is the highest paid coach across all conferences, at a $5.19 million salary, according to the report.
Most of UH's 10 highest-paid employees maintained their rankings from last year, except for the dean of the business school, who moved up one spot to No. 6, bumping an astronomer down one spot from last year.
Here's a list of the 10 highest paid UH employees along with their salaries from last year. (A list of the 50 highest paid positions is below. Read a related story on all University of Hawaii salaries.)
