BALTIMORE (AP) — An analysis of Maryland state employee salaries for last year shows that the majority of the more than 1,300 workers earning as much or more than Gov. Martin O’Malley were employed by the University System of Maryland.

The Baltimore Sun analysis of employees found that the 15 highest earners worked for the university system. Former Maryland basketball coach Gary Williams was the highest-paid state employee with $2.3 million, which included a base salary of $450,869 and additional earnings from media appearances, camps and other incentives.

Former football coach Ralph Friedgen was second on the list with $1.1 million. O’Malley earned $150,000 in 2010, a figure that was topped by several of his Cabinet members.

Many of the top earners were physicians in leadership at the university.

    Why do you think your kid’s tuition is so high & as for the governor, He should be a volunteered servant with expenses paid & a retirement plan that is very good but he & all other state bigwigs should donate their services & expertise. Look @ the late Willie Joe Schaeffer, he managed to amass a 2.5 million estate that was reported. You make a lot of friends in high places.
