Very simple. KU - and Lew Perkins - wants to ensure that we are viewed as a FOOTBALL school. Football schools do not hire head coaches for $1 million dollars. If you want to play with the big boys you have to be able to pay with the big boys.
Much like Mangino's raise and extension, this salary is aimed at the wider football community; KU is serious about football.
