Current Miami defensive coordinator Bill Young has been offered a megabuck deal that could pay him up to $700,000 per year to become the defensive coordinator at Oklahoma State.
The Tulsa World follows up on a report by Canesports.com that Young, a former Kansas, Oklahoma State and Tulsa defensive coordinator, could be offered a record pact for the Cowboys.
Will Muschamp of Texas makes $1 million per year, but part of that salary was earned because he is the Longhorns' designated head coach after Mack Brown retires.
The World reports that former Oklahoma State defensive coordinator Tim Beckman, who left for the head coaching job at Toledo, was paid $303,000 last season. And Joe DeForest, the Cowboys' special teams coach, is the highest paid member of Coach Mike Gundy's staff makes $319,000 per season.
Young, 62, played collegiately at Oklahoma State from 1965-67. He most recently served in the Big 12 during a six-season stint as defensive coordinator at Kansas on Coach Mark Mangino's staff from 2002 through 2007.
