While the story didn’t dig too deep, the figures speak for themselves. The base salary for the highest paid public university president? $1 million for Texas A&M’s Michael K. Young.

Now, as the articles notes, this is comparatively lower than university football coaches such as Alabama’s Nick Saban who made $7.16 million in 2014. But as it also notes, it’s comparatively higher than the President of the United States who makes $400,000 annually.
