If Jim Harbaugh Is Worth $8 Million, Then What Was Vince Lombardi Worth?

Rumors are flying around Jim Harbaugh like crazy.

Some still have him ending up as the head coach at Michigan, but the more credible ones (if there is such a thing as a "credible" rumor) have him finding his way to the NFL.

The more amazing reports coming out regarding Harbaugh looking at the highest salary of any coach in NFL history has got me thinking.

If Harbaugh, a somewhat proven college coach with zero experience as an NFL head coach, is worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $7-8 million, shattering the head coaches' salary records, then what would someone like Vince Lombardi, and his two Super Bowl victories and five NFL championships, be worth on the open market, in their prime, in a market like we have today?

Or Chuck Noll (four Super Bowls)? Or Tom Landry (two Super Bowls and five conference titles)? Or heck, even Bud Grant (four Super Bowl experiences)?

Let's check it out.
