Ray Anderson who was NFL Executive VP of Football Operations, left that post in January of 2014 to become AD at Arizona State.  That was the last year the NFL held non-profit status and had to disclose executive salaries...

(form 990 here see page 7) that time he was making a little over $1.5 Million in total compensation with the league.  I realize all circumstances are different, but I doubt seriously that McKenna-Doyle actually withdrew from consideration (and for compensation reasons).  Anderson now draws an annual salary of $642,000.

"Anderson acknowledged he was taking a pay cut to come to ASU. 'What makes up for it (making less) is the opportunity to have a real impact and be a real influencer,' the 59-year-old said."

Nice research. Anderson did take a pay cut of almost $900,000, or down to 43% of his previous salary. That's one hell of a whack to take voluntarily. A person would have to be in a certain financial/mental/family situation to be willing to accept that. It's not at all hard to see why someone wouldn't volunteer to take a $900,000 a year pay cut, particularly if they like their current job. We'll probably never know if McKenna-Doyle withdrew her name or not, but it wouldn't be surprising to learn that someone refused to consider taking a job that would require a pay cut of $900,000 a year.
