Who is the most highly paid state of Maryland employee?

If your guess was Gov. Martin O’Malley – who earned $150,000 in 2012 – you’re way off, according to an updated state salary database on the Baltimore Sun website.

University of Maryland football coach Randy Edsall and men’s basketball coach Mark Turgeon each were paid more than $2 million, the newspaper says.

But Maryland’s top wage-earners outside of collegiate sports were University of Maryland doctors, the newspaper says. At the School of Medicine, dean and vice president of medical affairs, Dr. E. Albert Reece, made $796,184.

According to the Sun, many of Maryland’s agency heads have bigger paychecks than the governor, including University of Maryland, Baltimore, President Dr. Jay A. Perman, who made $789,565; Paul Wiedefeld, CEO of the Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, who made $260,859; and Michael J. Frenz, director of the Maryland Stadium Authority, who made $249,332.
