Warren Sapp’s pay at Colorado revealed as graduate assistant football coach


Pro Football Hall of Famer Warren Sapp made more than $58 million during his 13-year NFL career but will earn only $150,000 annually in his new entry-level coaching job at Colorado under head coach Deion Sanders, according to employment documents obtained by USA TODAY Sports.

The pay might seem like a comedown for him − $12,500 per month, plus $15,000 in moving expenses. But he wants to work for Sanders, a fellow Pro Football Hall of Famer, and he is starting at the ground floor as a college coach in part because he has little prior coaching experience.
