CFB Salaries for Head Coaches & Asst Coaches

Recommended Posts

A FootballScoop study found the top 10 highest-paid defensive backs coaches earn north of $400,000, but not as much as the 10 highest-paid offensive line coaches.

Behold, the latest in a series examining the biggest salaries for position coaches across major college football. Information courtesy of the USA Today coaching salary database and based on publicly available contracts.

  Top 10 highest-paid DBs coaches -- 2018

1. Charlton Warren, Georgia — $600,000
2. Craig Naivar, Texas@ — $500,000
2. Chris Partridge, Michigan@ — $500,0000
2. Paul Rhoads, UCLA — $500,000
5. Maurice Linguist, Texas A&M — $450,000
5. Keith Hayward, Oregon* — $450,000
5. Anthony Poindexter, Purdue* — $450,000
8. Mike Reed, Clemson — $440,000
9. Roy Manning, Oklahoma — $425,000
10. Anthony Campanile, Michigan — $415,000

* – Also a co-defensive coordinator
@ – Also a special teams coordinator

Other notes:

— The emphasis of this exercise is to study position coaches, not coordinators. That said, it bears mentioning that South Carolina’s Travaris Robinson ($1.2 million) is technically the highest-paid defensive backs coach in the country. We’re trying to find the price point for coaches whose primary responsibility is to coach cornerbacks and safeties, not call plays.

— Yet again, Alabama and Ohio State are nowhere to be found. The Buckeyes actually led this list in 2018 with Alex Grinch’s $1.158 million salary, and new hires Jeff Hafley and Matt Barnes have yet to have their salaries revealed. Alabama defensive backs coach Karl Scott, on the other hand, remains employed but nowhere close to the top 10 at just — “just” — $350,000 a year. No one coaching football for a living at the Power 5 level is underpaid, but if they were, Scott would have to be among the most underpaid coaches in the sport.

— Three new hires made the list in Georgia’s Charlton Warren, Michigan’s Anthony Campanile and Oklahoma’s Roy Manning.

— Oklahoma announced Manning’s salary on Jan. 30, bumping Michigan State’s Paul Haynes and LSU’s Corey Raymond from the list, who each made $410,000. Actually, that’s not true. Haynes made $410,002.

10 Highest Paid RBs Coaches -- 2018

1. Tommie Robinson, LSU — $600,000
2. Dell McGee, Georgia — $550,000
3. Tony Alford, Ohio State — $525,000
3. Stan Drayton, Texas — $525,000
5. Jay Graham, Texas A&M — $475,000
6. Jay Boulware, Oklahoma — $470,000
7. Greg Knox, Florida — $451,000
8. Joe Pannunzio, Alabama — $425,000
9. Derrick Nix, Ole Miss — $400,000
10. Donte Pimpleton, Florida State — $370,000
10. John Settle, Wisconsin — $370,000
10. Jeff Traylor, Arkansas — $370,000

Notes of interest:

— Once again, the purpose of this study is to understand the market for position coaches, not play-callers. Technically speaking, Clemson’s Tony Elliott ($875,000) and Kentucky’s Eddie Gran ($850,000) are the highest-paid running backs coaches in the country, but both are also offensive coordinators.

As part of our ongoing series, FootballScoop has examined the 10 highest-paid special teams coordinators in college football. All information is based on publicly available information, primarily from the USA Today salary database.

10 Highest Paid Special Teams Coaches -- 2018

1. Craig Naivar, Texas — $500,000
1. Chris Partridge, Michigan — $500,000
3. Danny Pearman, Clemson — $480,000
4. Jovan Dewitt, Nebraska — $475,000
4. Coleman Hutzler, South Carolina — $475,000
6. James Shibest, Virginia Tech — $445,000
7. Jay Boulware, Oklahoma — $435,000
8. Jeff Banks, Alabama — $434,000
9. Shawn Slocum, Arizona State — $420,000
10. Andy Hill, Missouri — $418,000

Other notes:

— Almost every special teams coordinator also has positional responsibilities. Two who do not? Slocum and Hill. Both handle just special teams while serving as their respective team’s associate head coach.

— Positional responsibilities were evenly split amongst the remaining eight. Tight ends (Perman, Shibest, Banks) was the most popular position — and we’d bet is the most common across the entire sport — but safeties (Naivar, Partridge) and linebackers (Dewitt, Hutzler) also had multiple entrants. Boulware also coaches Oklahoma’s running backs.

Georgia overpays

Seems like James Washington should be getting a decent raise at Texas soon..... JW does a great job recruiting.

Naivar probably draws a higher salary for coaching both 1) Safeties and 2) Special Teams plus.... Experience and loyalty to Herman.

10 Highest Paid DL Coaches -- 2018

1. Larry Johnson, Ohio State — $750,000
2. Rodney Garner, Auburn — $650,000
2. Joe Salave’a, Oregon — $650,000
4. Tracy Rocker, Tennessee — $505,000
5. Reese Morgan, Iowa — $500,000
5. Freddie Roach, Ole Miss — $500,000
5. Terry Price, Texas A&M — $500,000
8. Odell Haggins, Florida State — $482,000
9. Brick Haley, Missouri — $477,000
10. Mike Dawson, Nebraska — $475,000
10. Mark Snyder, Florida State — $475,000

Other notes of interest:

— While nothing is official yet, reporting from us and other outlets indicate Sal Sunseri is leaving Florida to replace Alabama defensive line coach Craig Kuligowski. Had both remained in place, both would have placed on this list. Kuligowski made $750,000 in 2018, while Sunseri took in $577,000.

— Technically speaking, Florida State spends more on its defensive line than anyone else in college football. Put together, Haggins and Snyder made $957,000 in 2018.

— No Power 5 coaches are underpaid but if they were, Clemson’s Todd Bates and Lemanski Hall have to be among the most underpaid coaches in college football. The pair put together one of the best defensive lines in college football history at a bargain basement price of $600,000.

We need a DL coach. 
I keep reading this and I keep not understanding... our DL does its job. We've had one guy consistently run himself out of position, but other than that, they're doing what is asked of them. What does the new DL coach get us?

10 Highest Paid TE Coaches -- 2018

1. Larry Porter, Auburn — $525,000
2. Danny Pearman, Clemson — $480,000
3. Vince Marrow, Kentucky — $450,000
4. James Shibest, Virginia Tech — $445,000
5. Mark Staten, Michigan State — $438,000
6. Shane Beamer, Oklahoma — $435,000
7. Jeff Banks, Alabama — $434,000
8. Sean Beckton, Nebraska — $400,000
9. Bobby Bentley, South Carolina — $400,000
10. Derek Warehime, Texas — $400,000

Other notes:

— Technically speaking, Kevin Wilson is the highest-paid tight ends coach in the country at $800,000 a year. Wilson is the rare offensive coordinator and tight ends coach in FBS. Another OC/TEs combo? Iowa’s Brian Ferentz, who made $685,000 in 2018. Oregon’s Marcus Arroyo coordinates the offense while coaching quarterbacks and tight ends.

— Michigan State’s case is an interesting one. Jim Bollman earned $542,000 as Michigan State’s tight ends coach and co-offensive coordinator last season, but Mark Dantonio has since handed tight ends (plus special teams) duties to Staten.

— Speaking of special teams coordinators, there are a lot on this list. Porter, Pearman, Staten, Banks and Warehime also handle special teams duties. Marrow is Kentucky’s recruiting coordinator and NFL liaison. Beamer is Oklahoma’s assistant head coach for offense in addition to coaching tight ends and fullbacks. Beckton and Bentley are the only coaches on this list to just handle tight ends.

— Joe Jon Finley is a safe bet to join this list soon. He made $365,000 at Missouri, then left for Texas A&M, where Tim Brewster made $479,000 in 2018.

figured as much...  

How many good recruiters are there that can also elevate the play of the DL?  We keep having a DLineman play better than expected every year...  I'd rather see us continue to coach up "lesser" talent than have us waste 5-star talent...

if we can get both, so be it... 

if the DL unit is short on numbers every year, then we need to look at doing things differently... if the complaint is we're short on talent, meh. that will solve itself as we start smashing people on defense...  in this defense, we need more LB playmakers than DL playmakers...  (not that I don't want playmakers everywhere...)

Clemson assistants Tony Elliott, Jeff Scott get raises to $1 million"

Mark Schlabach  ESPN Senior Writer

Clemson's second College Football Playoff national championship in three seasons is paying big dividends for the Tigers' coaching staff, especially co-offensive coordinators Tony Elliott and Jeff Scott.

The Clemson board of trustees on Friday approved $150,000 raises for Elliott and Scott, who will now make $1 million annually.  The university is expected to wait until later this year to increase head coach Dabo Swinney's annual compensation of $6 million.

Tigers defensive coordinator Brent Venables was the second-highest-paid assistant in the Football Bowl Subdivision this past season with a $2.2 million salary, according to a database compiled by USA Today, giving the Tigers three assistants making more than $1 million. LSU defensive coordinator Dave Aranda was the sport's highest-paid coordinator at $2.5 million.

There were 21 FBS assistant coaches making more than $1 million annually in 2018, according to the USA Today database. Only Ohio State had three assistant coaches making at least $1 million: co-defensive coordinator Greg Schiano ($1.5 million), offensive coordinator Ryan Day ($1.2 million) and co-defensive coordinator Alex Grinch ($1.1 million). Seven other assistants making more than $1 million in 2018 became head coaches in college football or the pros, left for other coordinator jobs or were fired.

Clemson is 56-4 in the four seasons since Elliott and Scott replaced former offensive coordinator Chad Morris in December 2014.  The Charleston Post-Courier reported that Clemson assistants Brandon Streeter, Todd Bates, Lemanski Hall, Robbie Caldwell, Mickey Conn, Danny Pearman and Mike Reed also will receive raises, along with members of the support staff.

I think the base data comes from USA Today.

http://sports.usatoday.com/ncaa/salaries/football/assistant

It was a fascinating read.  The thing that really stands out is that 9 of the 10 and 15 of the top 20 highest paid assistants were DCs.  That made no sense on its face with all of the emphasis on offensive innovation in CFB today.  So I looked a little deeper at the data using the hypothesis that any top OC was going to get a shot at HC somewhere so the DCs would have a lot of tenure and the top guys would be compensated accordingly.

It all came into focus since every one of the 5 OCs in the top 20 became a HC somewhere after the 2018 season.  In contrast only ONE of the 15 DCs on the list got head coaching jobs: UGa's Mel Tucker to Colorado.  A hit rate of 100% on offense vs 7% on defense.  I was thinking that the pendulum might swing back to defense then realized that most of the NCAA and NFL is still badly behind and desperately trying to catch up to the spread revolution on offense that we take for granted in the Big XII.  Capable spread and especially Air Raid OCs are going to be in high demand for the foreseeable future so we should get used to this pattern in coordinator hiring and compensation.  Here's the raw data I came up with (* denotes coordinators promoted to HC):

                                                                            Years     Age                                                                              

Aranda                 LSU                        DC          10           42          

Venables             Clemson              DC          21           48          

Steele                   Auburn                 DC          13           60          

Elko                        aggy                       DC          14           41          

Orlando                TEXAS                   DC          15           47          

Leavitt                  Oregon                 DC          27           62          

Schiano                OH St                     DC          19           52          

Tucker                  Uga                        DC          12           47           *

Hamilton              Mich                      OC          10           44           *

Grantham           Florida                  DC          15           52          

Brown                   Mich                      DC          36           63          

Helton                  Tenn                      OC          6              41           *

Locksley               Bama                     OC          13           49           *

Day                        OH St                     OC          6              39           *

Robinson             So Car                   DC          4              37          

Grinch                   OH St                     DC          5              38          

Lindsey                 Auburn                 OC          6              44           *

Lake                       Wash                     DC          4              42          

Lupoi                     Bama                     DC          3              37

2019 K-State Football Assistants Salaries: 

DC     Ted Monachino: $525,000.

OC    Courtney Messingham: $500,000.

OL.      Conor Riley: $400,000.

CBs.      Van Malone: $350,000.

Safeties  Joe Klanderman: $350,000.

RBs.         Brian Anderson: $300,000.

WRs.         Jason Ray: $300,000.

QBs.          Collin Klein: $300,000

DE.             Blake Seiler: $300,000.

DT.             Mike Tuiasosopo: $225,000.

The salary pool for Chris Klieman’s inaugural staff of football assistants at Kansas State comes out to $3.55 million.

That is nearly the same amount of money Bill Snyder had to use on his final coaching staff.  

Add on Klieman’s base salary of $2.3 million and the Wildcats are spending $5.85 million on football coaches in 2019. They spent more last season ($7.08 million) with Bill Snyder earning $3.5 million. That will help the athletic department offset some of the money it owes former coaches following his retirement.

https://www.kansascity.com/sports/college/big-12/kansas-state/article224614975.html?src=rss?src=rss

(Fyi.... Charlie Dickey (offensive line) and Sean Snyder (special teams) were the highest paid assistants on the previous staff at $480,000. )

10 Highest Paid WR Coaches -- 2018

1. Dameyune Craig, Texas A&M — $600,000
2. Cale Gundy, Oklahoma — $535,000
3. David Johnson, Tennessee — $505,000
4. Dennis Simmons, Oklahoma — $460,000
5. Jacob Peeler, Ole Miss — $425,000
6. Kasey Dunn, Oklahoma State — $410,000
7. Darrin Chiaverini, Colorado — $400,000
8. Cortez Hankton, Georgia — $375,000
9. Kodi Burns, Auburn — $350,000
9. Drew Mehringer, Texas — $350,000
9. Justin Stepp, Arkansas — $350,000

Notes of interest:

— Coordinators (or co-coordinators) not included in this list (because they’re coordinators or co-coordinators): Clemson’s Jeff Scott ($1 million), Michigan’s Josh Gattis ($900,000), Nebraska’s Troy Walters ($700,000), South Carolina’s Bryan McClendon ($675,000), Mississippi State’s Luke Getsy ($600,000), Florida’s Billy Gonzales ($577,000) and NC State’s George McDonald ($368,000).

— Brian Hartline made $105,000 as Ohio State’s interim wide receivers coach in 2018. Ryan Day has since named him the Buckeyes’ full-time wideouts coach, but his salary is not yet public. You can safely assume it’ll be above $105,000, though.

— Equally worth of mentioning: Alabama does not have a wide receivers coach as of this moment. For what it’s worth, Gattis made $525,000 while coaching the Crimson Tide’s wide receivers in 2018.

— Gundy serves as Lincoln Riley’s co-offensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator in addition to coaching Oklahoma’s inside receivers. The former Oklahoma quarterback and GA — who turns 47 in April — has been a Sooner for all but four years of his adult life.

10 Highest Paid QB Coaches -- 2018,

The vast majority of head coaches have their offensive coordinators also coach quarterbacks for reasons Stevie Wonder can see. But not all of them do. But in the event where the coordinator handles a position separate from quarterbacks, the quarterbacks coach is still a valued member of the staff, as evidenced below.

1. Dan Werner, South Carolina — $700,000
2. Dave Warner, Michigan State — $562,000
3. Ken O’Keefe, Iowa — $540,000
4. Darin Hinshaw, Kentucky — $500,000
4. Brandon Streeter, Clemson — $500,000
6. Dana Bible, UCLA — $450,000
7. Brian Johnson, Florida — $427,000
8. Mario Verduzco, Nebraska — $375,000
9. Jason Beck, Virginia — $300,000
9. Andrew Breiner, Mississippi State — $300,000
9. Joel Gordon, Iowa State — $300,000
9. Ben McDaniels, Michigan — $300,000

 

Notes of interest:

— We don’t know Mike Yurcich’s Ohio State salary yet. While he won’t officially be the Buckeyes’ offensive coordinator like Ryan Day was last season (Kevin Wilson holds that title for 2019), Day made $1.2 million in 2018.

— Michigan will net a savings of $1.15 million for its quarterbacks coach from 2018 to ’19. Pep Hamilton made $1.45 million in the same spot McDaniels will earn $300,000.

— Michigan State’s entry on this list comes with an asterisk. Warner did not coach Michigan State’s quarterbacks last season (Brad Salem did) while serving as Sparty’s offensive coordinator. Mark Dantonio shuffled the staff and moved Warner to quarterbacks and, until we’re told otherwise, his salary remains the same, making him the highest-paid quarterbacks coach in college football. For the record, Salem made $438,000 last season.

As far as total play, Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables is No. 2 nationally with a salary of $2,201,500. Venables is behind only LSU defensive coordinator Dave Aranda, who is at $2,500,000.

Auburn’s Kevin Steele ($2,050,500), Texas A&M’s Mike Elko ($1,800,000) and Todd Orlando of Texas ($1,710,000) round out the top five.

http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/26316078/bama-assistants-make-754m

Alabama is back in front of Clemson -- in football coaching salaries.

The University of Alabama's board of trustees on Wednesday approved contracts and salaries for Nick Saban's coaching staff, including seven new assistants.

The Crimson Tide's 10 on-field assistant coaches will make $7.541 million in basic annual compensation for the 2019 season. It represents an increase of about $1.4 million from what Alabama paid its assistants last season, and it is expected to be the most among FBS programs this coming season.

Last season, the Crimson Tide ($6.12 million) ranked seventh in the FBS -- and fifth in the SEC -- in assistant coaches' compensation, according to a database of contracts and salaries compiled by USA Today.

Offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian, who returned to the Tide after working for the Atlanta Falcons in 2017-18, will be the highest paid assistant at $1.55 million this season. Newly promoted defensive coordinator Pete Golding, one of three assistant coaches who stayed, will make $1.1 million.

Coaching staffs at Ohio State ($7.38 million), Clemson ($6.82 million), Texas A&M ($6.79 million), Auburn ($6.55 million), LSU ($6.47 million) and Georgia ($6.42 million) were paid more than Alabama's staff last season, according to the database.

With three coordinators now making more than $1 million each in 2019, defending national champion Clemson has already disclosed that its assistants will make a total of $7.195 million this coming season.

New Ohio State coach Ryan Day's staff will be paid a total of $7.245 million, with defensive coordinator Greg Mattison leading the way at $1.1 million annually.

Georgia will pay its 10 coaches about $6.1 million in 2019, after former defensive coordinator Mel Tucker left to become Colorado's head coach and offensive coordinator Jim Chaney left for Tennessee. Tucker and Chaney were the Bulldogs' two highest paid assistants last season.

None of Georgia's 10 assistant coaches will make at least $1 million in basic compensation in 2019.

Lol. It's so adorable how the highest paid employee is a football coach in any state these days... and how schools can still be paying off coaches they fired 2 or 3 regimes ago.

South Carolina’s board of trustees has approved the pay for Will Muschamp’s staff for the 2019 campaign.  Much of the pay has already been set. The USC board approved the final pieces on Monday by rubber-stamping extensions for assistant coaches Bobby Bentley, Coleman Hutzler, Mike Peterson and Jeff Dillman; all are now under contract through May 31, 2020, according to The State, but none of the four received raises with their extensions. Bentley and Hutzler are already among the highest-paid at their positions in college football.

McClendon netted the biggest raise in a deal that was announced in December. Muschamp also got a 1-year extension in December, keeping him under contract through the 2024 campaign. He earned $4.8 million in 2018 and is set to make $5.4 million in ’24.

Athletics director Ray Tanner also received an extension on Monday, a 2-year deal keeping him in Columbia through 2024, like Muschamp.

Source: A&M DC joins $2M club with new deal

May 22, 2019.     2:17 PM CT

Adam Rittenberg  ESPN Staff Writer

Texas A&M defensive coordinator Mike Elko has agreed to a new three-year contract with the school that will pay him $2.1 million annually, a source told ESPN.  The Dallas Morning News first reported Elko's new contract.

Elko, in his second season on Jimbo Fisher's staff with the Aggies, joins LSU's Dave Aranda, Clemson's Brent Venables and Auburn's Kevin Steele as defensive coordinators earning at least $2 million annually.

Elko, 42, came to Texas A&M after serving as Notre Dame's defensive coordinator in 2017, and agreed to a three-year contract.  He also has held coordinator posts at Wake Forest, Bowling Green, Hofstra and Fordham.   The Penn alum interviewed for the head-coaching vacancy at Temple last year but opted to remain at Texas A&M.

"Details on Lincoln Riley's new 5-year contract"

By. BRAD CRAWFORD Jun 18, 2019

Lincoln Riley's new contract at the University of Oklahoma is worth $32 million over the next five years and is filled with perks and performance-based bonus opportunities, according to The Tulsa World.  Running Feb. 1, 2019 through Jan. 31, 2024, Riley's new deal features the highest raise in program history, various off-the-field luxuries and nearly $1 million extra annually depending on Oklahoma's level of success.  Riley's $6 million salary in 2019 is a $1.2 million bump from his 2018 pay. By comparison, Bob Stoops' highest salary in Norman was $5.5 million in 2016.   Per The Tulsa World, Riley receives playing privileges at two local golf courses, has access to a private plane for 35 hours annually, has a University-sponsored car and receives 20 football tickets for each game — highlighted by friends and family access to a suite.

The Sooners convinced Riley to stay for the long haul at the end of January, during a time in which his name was being tossed around for various jobs in the NFL.  "We felt it important to extend and amend Lincoln's contract at this time as we want him at the University of Oklahoma for a long time," OU President James Gallogly said after Riley agreed in principle. "He is a great coach and role model for our student-athletes. His record of success speaks for itself.  "Lincoln is also the right representative for our university in such a high-profile position. I am proud to work with him and anxious to support him as he takes our program into the future."

University Vice President and Athletics Director Joe Castiglione said Riley's leadership abilities and his focus on the future of the program made the offer a homerun. "We're obviously appreciative of what's already been accomplished in such a short time, but strengthening our relationship with Lincoln is also important as we collectively focus on the larger goals of our program," Castiglione said. "He has proven to be one of the most innovative minds in the game today as well as a very successful leader for his student-athletes.

"His remarkable ascent as one of the most outstanding football coaches in America is grounded in creating the right environment for developing the best growth opportunities for all of his players. The incredible level of achievement and energy around our program all point to a very bright future under his leadership."   This new contract makes Riley, who is 24-4 in two seasons with the Sooners, one of college football's highest-paid coaches annually. Based on the $6 million he's set to receive in 2019, Riley is now the highest-paid coach in the Big 12, passing Tom Herman at Texas ($5.5 million).   Riley and the Sooners are seeking their third consecutive trip to the College Football Playoff this season and record-setting third straight Heisman winner at quarterback.

So here's a 5 year deal while others are getting 10, Lincoln.

Also I wonder what the buyout is if he wants to go to the NFL.

Clemson's Dabo Swinney tops salary list at $9.3M, passing Alabama's Nick Saban at $8.85M

Oct 22, 2019.   ESPN

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney took over the top spot in the annual coaches salary database, published by USA Today on Tuesday.  Swinney made $9.3 million in total pay, surpassing Alabama's Nick Saban at $8.85 million. Swinney agreed to a 10-year, $93 million contract extension in April, after winning his second national title in three years.  Saban topped the list last year, when he signed an eight-year, $74.4 million extension to coach through the 2025 season.

Michigan's Jim Harbaugh is third on the 2019 list at $7.504 million, followed by Texas A&M's Jimbo Fisher at $7.5 million and Georgia's Kirby Smart at $6.87 million.  Fisher has the largest buyout, at $60.6 million, followed by Swinney at $50 million.

Four SEC coaches are in the top 10, with Auburn's Gus Malzahn sixth at $6.83 million and Florida's Dan Mullen 10th at $6.1 million.  Texas' Tom Herman was the top-paid coach in the Big 12, ranking seventh overall at $6.75 million.  Purdue's Jeff Brohm is eighth at $6.6 million and Oklahoma's Lincoln Riley ninth at $6.3 million.  LSU's Ed Orgeron, coach of the No. 2-ranked Tigers, is a bargain at $4 million, which ranks 30th.

Every coach in the SEC makes at least $3 million, with total average pay of $4.95 million, according to the database.  USA Today has compiled the list since 2006, when Oklahoma's Bob Stoops was the only coach to make more than $3 million in total compensation. This year, 31 coaches make at least $3 million.
