Nope, not the chairman of the Joint Chiefs. But yes, the coach of the Navy football team gets that salary. The Air Force coach makes $889,000, USA Today reports. By comparison, the Army coach is practically on food stamps, getting just $610,000. (On the other hand, that still works out to more than $200,000 per Army win, so far this season.)
