    Hoover football coach Josh Niblett received a raise earlier this month from $114,471 to a state-best $125,000 per year, according to Hoover City Schools.

    That marked the fourth time over the last 10 months that one Alabama high-school coach’s salary leapfrogged another to become the state’s highest-paid public school coach.

    “It has kind of been getting outrageous," Niblett said.

    The numbers those guys are making -- and not teaching -- are unbelievable.”
