If you think Governor Otter is the highest paid Idaho state employee, you’d be wrong…way wrong.

Boise State Head football coach Bryan Harsin tops the list. He earns a reported $1.1 million…he’s followed by Bronco’s Head Basketball Coach Leon Rice at $650,000.

The presidents of Idaho’s three four-year universities are next on the list, with Boise State University President Bob Kustra pulling in just below $386,000, Idaho State President Arthur Vailas making $371,000, and University of Idaho President Charles Staben making $364,000.

The lion’s share of the top 332 highest paid state employees work for the state’s colleges and universities, with PERSI Chief Investment Officer Robert Maynard being the highest-paid non-education employee, at just shy of $289,000. Click here for a link to the full report.
