Football Scoop

The highest-paid receivers coaches in college football: 2020 edition

By Zach Barnett     February 18, 2020

1. Bryan McClendon, South Carolina — $1 million
2. Billy Gonzales, Florida — $601,500
3. Dameyune Craig, Texas A&M — $600,000
4. Cale Gundy, Oklahoma — $535,000
5. Darrin Chiaverini, Colorado — $500,000
6. Dennis Simmons, Oklahoma — $460,000
7. Tee Martin, Tennessee — $450,000
7. Derrick Nix, Ole Miss — $450,000
7. Holmon Wiggins, Alabama — $450,000
10. Justin Stepp, Arkansas — $400,000

— Coordinators not included on this list: Josh Gattis, Michigan ($1.1 million); Kasey Dunn, Oklahoma State ($600,000); Gerad Parker, West Virginia ($525,000); Matt Lubick, Nebraska ($500,000).

— McClendon netted his $1 million salary because he used to be South Carolina’s coordinator. That title now belongs to Mike Bobo. So while McClendon didn’t get to keep his title, he does get to keep his salary.

— Gonzales and Gundy both carry co-coordinator titles, though both of their respective head coaches call plays.

— Martin, also Tennessee’s assistant head coach and passing game coordinator, is still getting paid (handsomely) by USC as well. His total compensation is over $1 million.

— Ohio State’s Brian Hartline figures to be on this list in 2021. The Buckeyes’ receivers were among the best in college football in 2019, and Hartline was named 247Sports‘s recruiter of the year for the Class of 2020, largely for reeling in 5-star wideouts Julian Fleming and Jaxon Smith-Njigba. At $345,000, Hartline barely missed the list as it is. (It’s doubtful Hartline is sweating that $5,000; he earned nearly $19 million as a receiver for the Browns and Dolphins.)

— Two receivers coaches who could work their way into big raises in the future: LSU’s Mickey Joseph ($310,000) and Clemson’s Tyler Grisham ($300,000).

Here’s how much Chad Morris will be paid as Auburn’s offensive coordinator

By Zach Barnett     February 21, 2020

Chad Morris will be simultaneously one of the lowest- and highest-paid offensive coordinators in the SEC in 2020.  Auburn announced Thursday night that Morris signed a 3-year contract worth $735,000 annually.  That figure places him behind Alabama’s Steve Sarkisian ($1.55 million), Tennessee’s Jim Chaney ($1.5 million), South Carolina’s Mike Bobo ($1.2 million), Georgia’s Todd Monken ($1.1 million), Arkansas’s Kendal Briles ($1 million), Kentucky’s Eddie Gran ($875,000), Texas A&M’s Darrell Dickey ($808,000) and LSU’s Steve Ensminger ($800,000) and Scott Linehan ($800,000).

In fact, Morris will be paid less than the offensive line coaches at Georgia and Tennessee, and less than Kentucky tight ends coach/recruiting coordinator Vince Marrow.  But Morris will make far more than any of his new peers in total, because he’s still being paid by Arkansas for the next three years.  Morris signed a 6-year contract upon taking the Arkansas job on Dec. 5, 2017 and only coached two years of that deal. The Hogs owe him $2.45 million per year for the next four years, so the Auburn contract means that figure will be offset down to $1.715 million per year over the next three.

Also, Auburn announced that new offensive line coach Jack Bicknell, Jr., will earn $500,000 per year on a 2-year contract. That represents a $100,000 raise from what he earned for the same job at Ole Miss, and a $75,000 bump from what Auburn paid JB Grimes.

The highest-paid offensive line coaches in college football: 2020 edition

By Zach Barnett -       February 21, 2020

If it’s all right with you, I’d like to use this article detailing the highest-paid offensive line coaches in college football to tell a story illustrating the state of play in the Southeastern Conference.  When this project began a year ago, Georgia’s offensive line coach topped the list with a salary of $825,000 a year. Georgia’s line coach will once again lead the list with a $900,000 salary, except those salaries will be collected by two different people.

  • Georgia’s former O-line coach, Sam Pittman, left to become the head coach at Arkansas.
  • He was replaced by Matt Luke, who was formerly the head coach at Ole Miss.
  • The man Pittman replaced at Arkansas, Chad Morris, is now the offensive coordinator at Auburn.
  • The man who replaced Luke at Ole Miss, Lane Kiffin, is formerly the head coach at Tennessee and the offensive coordinator at Alabama.
  • Mixed among all that upheaval, former Ole Miss offensive line coach Jack Bicknell, Jr., (a $400,000 salary in 2019) left for Auburn once Luke was not retained in Oxford.

Got all that??

  1. Matt Luke, Georgia — $900,000
  2. Will Friend, Tennessee — $805,000
  3. Bill Bedebaugh, Oklahoma — $750,000
  4. Justin Frye, UCLA — $700,000
  5. Eric Wolford, South Carolina — $700,000
  6. Kyle Flood, Alabama — $650,000
  7. Herb Hand, Texas — $650,000
  8. Robbie Caldwell, Clemson — $640,000
  9. Ed Warinner, Michigan — $625,000
  10. Josh Henson, Texas A&M — $605,000

Additional notes:

— Joe Rudolph earns $770,000 at Wisconsin, but he’s also Wisconsin’s offensive coordinator. As is Louisville’s Dwayne Ledford and his $650,000 salary.

— Josh Henson earned a 41 percent raise in leaving Oklahoma State for Texas A&M. His replacement, Charlie Dickey, earns $500,000.

— We don’t yet know what Randy Clements will earn at Ole Miss, nor Phil Trautwein at Penn State. Clements made $475,000 at Florida State in 2019; Trautwein’s salary at Boston College was private.

— Brandon Jones earns $500,000 as the offensive line coach and co-offensive coordinator at Houston. This makes him the highest-paid assistant in all of Group of 5.

— Number of non-SEC/Clemson coaches on the list through three position groups: 10.

The 10 highest-paid defensive line coaches in college football: 2020 edition

By Zach Barnett -    February 19, 2020

If you’re building a football team from scratch and can only be elite at one position, you would definitely take an elite quarterback over anything else. That’s indisputable. A best-in-class quarterback makes life so much easier for the rest of the offense, especially in modern college football, that you simply couldn’t pass one up if given the option. But once that’s off the table, you’d rather be elite along your defensive line than anywhere else.  All four of the 2019 College Football Playoff participants ranked among the top 16 nationally in passing efficiency. They were also all in the top 21 in sacks, and in the top 23 in tackles for loss. Clemson’s 2018 national championship team led the nation in sacks and tackles for loss.   We’ve all seen those Twitter posts where you’re given $15 to build a mythical roster with options ranging from $5 to $1, right? College football head coaches get to play that game in real life, and they’re spending $5 on their defensive line coaches.   

As always, the bulk of the information here comes from USA Today‘s coaching salary database.

1. Larry Johnson, Ohio State — $900,000
2. Rodney Garner, Auburn — $700,000
3. Joe Salave’a, Oregon — $650,000
4. Brick Haley, Missouri — $625,000
5. Odell Haggins, Florida State — $525,000
5. Tracy Rocker, South Carolina — $525,000
7. Todd Bates, Clemson — $515,000
8. Terry Price, Texas A&M — $508,000
9. Lemanski Hall, Clemson — $500,000
9. Freddie Roach, Alabama — $500,000

— Larry Johnson is the highest-paid coach at $900,000, but Clemson spends more on defensive line coaching than any other school at $1.15 million. In a related note, Ohio State led the nation in sacks and tackles for loss in 2019. Clemson did both in 2018, as mentioned above.

— Florida State’s John Papuchis technically belongs on this list with a $550,000 salary, but he’s also the Seminoles’ special teams coordinator. We’re trying to isolate the value of defensive line coaching here.

— Before he left for Michigan State, Mel Tucker lamented the loss of Jimmy Brumbaugh to Tennessee, saying there was nothing he could do to keep him at Colorado since Tennessee doubled his salary. We don’t yet know what Tennessee will pay him, but we do know his CU salary was set to jump from $175,000 to $450,000.

— Derrick LeBlanc earned a $125,000 raise in moving from Kentucky to Arkansas. He now makes $450,000.

— Ron Burton earned $462,000 on Mark Dantonio’s staff in 2019. He had previously agreed to leave for Indiana after Dantonio left, but pulled a U-turn at the border to remain at Michigan State on Mel Tucker’s staff. Considering Tucker has $6 million to spend on his assistants, it’s possible Burton is now above $500,000, or at least $462,000.

Mark Hagen made $408,000 at Indiana before leaving for Texas. Oscar Giles made $400,000 coaching UT’s defensive ends and tackles last season, so it’ll be interesting to see what both earn in 2020 with split duties (Hagen with the tackles, Giles with the ends).

— Georgia’s Tray Scott was the last one out at $470,000.

— Twenty entries in, the total number of non-SEC/Clemson coaches: 6.

(Thx for below... @satyanash )

(Fuck Chip Brown) Tom Herman's staff reboot: Overpriced or money well spent?

AUSTIN, Texas — After going 25-15 in his first three years at Texas, Tom Herman replaced most of a staff he put together to coach at Houston with a staff that brings in much more Power Five coaching experience. And it didn’t come cheap. Even though the base salaries of new offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich ($1.7 million) and new defensive coordinator Chris Ash ($800,000) combine to equal what previous defensive coordinator Todd Orlando ($1.7 million) and previous offensive coordinator Tim Beck ($800,000) were making, some significant guarantees were made.

Yurcich got three years guaranteed, while Ash, who is still owed $7.5 million in buyout money from Rutgers (with an offset),  got two years guaranteed. New tight ends coach and special teams coordinator Jay Boulware got three years guaranteed with a base salary of $700,000. New co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Coleman Hutzler got two years guaranteed with a base salary of $600,000.

When Herman brought in his initial staff in 2017, the coordinators got three-year, guaranteed deals while the other assistants got two-year deals. After those two-year deals were done, Herman put assistants on one-year deals - perhaps foreshadowing the staff turnover that just occurred. Because Texas’ 8-5 season in 2019 fell short of expectations, leading to the exodus of seven assistants, the perception was Herman was embattled and that UT would have to give out multi-year, guaranteed deals. The only way those guaranteed years become a factor is if Herman didn’t get his staff hires right.

At first glance, I think he did get it right. Yurcich has a better track record running a power spread offense (at Oklahoma State) than Beck did when he arrived at Texas three years ago. Ash has been a defensive coordinator at Ohio State, Wisconsin and Arkansas. Orlando arrived at Texas having coordinated defenses at UConn, Florida International, Utah State and Houston. And even though Orlando had a rock solid first year at Texas, holding opponents to 21.2 points per game, and getting a raise from $1.1 million to $1.7 million, his defenses fell off the past two seasons (25.9 points per game given up in 2018 and 27.5 ppg in 2019).

Herman had former Houston Westfield High School coach Corby Meekins coaching tight ends in 2017 and then inside receivers the past two seasons. Now, Herman has Boulware, who spent the past 10 years at Auburn, where he helped win a national title (2010), and Oklahoma, where he was part of four straight Big 12 titles. Because Orlando was the linebackers coach, Herman needed a replacement. He hired Hutzler, who coached for Jim Harbaugh at San Diego and Stanford and for Will Muschamp at Florida and South Carolina.

Herman has also hired former Kansas State offensive coordinator Andre Coleman as receivers coach, replacing Drew Mehringer; added former A&M assistant and former Indiana co-defensive coordinator Mark Hagen as defensive tackles coach; and former Rutgers cornerbacks coach Jay Valai, who played under Ash at Wisconsin and was hired by Ash at Rutgers. If Herman felt like his previous staff lacked big-time, Power Five coaching experience, he’s taken care of that with his staff reboot. Most all of the coaches hired are also known for their intensity and attention to detail. Say what you want about Herman, but his teams are tough, play physical and are usually in tight, fourth-quarter games - win or lose.

Texas athletic director Chris Del Conte said in an exclusive interview with Horns247 on The Flagship Podcast: “You have to have trust in your head coaches to make the right decisions. An AD’s job is to always try to do the very best job to hire the very best head coach available. That's my job. With Tom, when he made the decision (to make coaching changes), I said, 'What do you need? I'm with you. Let's make the decisions you need.' And then we just had conversations of what he was looking for.”

While one of the main factors in the search was to find coaches who would be the best personnel fit under Herman’s direction, Del Conte and Herman took a look at the strengths of the Texas program, the Longhorns’ roster personnel and the schematic desires of the head coach as they began to formulate the plan to hire Herman’s next wave of assistant coaches.

“We knew right now that we have the skill set of a great quarterback (in Sam Ehlinger),” Del Conte said. “We have to run an offense, and we know that the quarterback can be successful as a senior. We have a great offensive line coach, who knows the team and recruited guys. So Tom was really going to look for people that fit our personnel. There were a lot of people saying ‘you have go hire this guy, that guy.’ But they weren't personnel fits.”

On defense, Herman wanted to run more of a 4-3 scheme. “Tom had a plan. He said, ‘I want to run four-down linemen. This is what we want to run,’” Del Conte said. “We looked at Ash, who is a hell of a defensive coordinator. He won a national championship at Ohio State. Tom wanted to run a four-down front. We had the personnel to do that and said, ‘Okay, let's go build our staff around that.’ And then he went to the offensive side and found guys who would fit what we’re trying to do.”

Penn State and Notre Dame both pursued Yurcich, but Herman got his man. “There needs to be common beliefs, but I think when you bring somebody in, you definitely want a fresh set of eyes, new ideas and maybe different and better ways of doing things,” Herman said of Yurcich. “His quarterback development speaks for itself. From (Justin Fields), who was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, and I think we all remember what the guys at Oklahoma State were able to do in his tenure there. So, that was a big part of me seeking Mike out, with what he has been able to do in developing quarterbacks.”

Spring football starts March 24 and concludes with the Orange-White Spring Game on April 25. A $200 million renovation of the south end of DKR is well under way (due to be completed before the 2021 season). Under Del Conte’s fearless leadership, there is nearly $800 million in athletics facility upgrades in the works at Texas, including the $388 million Moody Center basketball arena as well as the newly announced $60 million basketball and rowing training facility (set to be completed in June 2022).

The only way all the guaranteed years being given out by Texas to new football assistants become a problem is if Herman did get the hires right. Herman clearly wanted a staff with more big-time, Power-Five coaching experience to command a veteran team with 16 returning starters. We'll know soon enough if Herman got what Texas paid for.

The highest-paid defensive backs coaches in college football: 2020 edition

By Zach Barnett.     February 24, 2020

Every position coaching job at the FBS level is tough, but coaching defensive backs at Alabama may be the toughest. Yes, you get to mold some of the best talent amateur football has to offer, but you’re doing so under the watchful eye of Nick Saban.

Not only that, you’re coaching Nick Saban’s position on Nick Saban’s staff. The greatest college football coach of his generation made his name in the profession coaching DBs — doing so at West Virginia, Ohio State, Navy, Michigan State and for the Houston Oilers from 1978-89 — and so there’s no way you can do the job he hired you to do better than he can do it himself. Every single day he’s watching you, knowing he can do it better.  Not everyone can handle that kind of spotlight.  The plus side? You’ll make more money coaching defensive backs at Alabama than anywhere else in the country.

Below are the 10 highest-paid paid defensive backs coaches in college football.

1. Charles Kelly, Alabama — $800,000
2. Charlton Warren, Georgia — $725,435
3. Chris Partridge, Ole Miss — $625,000
4. Keith Heyward, Oregon — $600,000
5. Karl Scott, Alabama — $550,000
6. Mike Reed, Clemson — $540,000
7. Mickey Conn, Clemson — $515,000
8. Steve Clinkscale, Kentucky — $500,000
8. Paul Rhoads, UCLA — $500,000
10. Anthony Poindexter, Purdue — $460,000
10. Corey Raymond, LSU — $460,000 

 

PREVIOUS INSTALLMENTS: Receivers | Offensive Line | Defensive Line

Additional notes:

— Travaris Robinson earns $1.2 million to coordinate South Carolina’s defensive while also coaching the secondary. Kerry Coombs also earns $1.2 million at Ohio State, as does Arkansas’s Barry Odom, while Derrick Ansley makes a flat $1 million at Tennessee. Phil Parker earns $800,000 at Iowa.

— Kelly is Alabama’s associate defensive coordinator — never seen that title before — and safeties coach.

— Maybe he couldn’t take another day with Jim Harbaugh, maybe he was tired of the cold or maybe he was just that desperate to quit coaching special teams. Either way, when coaches leave one gig for another they usually do so for a pay raise, but not Chris Partridge. The $625,000 he earns as Lane Kiffin’s co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach was the same he would have made as Michigan’s special teams coordinator and safeties coach.

— We don’t yet know what TJ Rushing will earn at Texas A&M, nor Jay Valai at Texas.

— The margin to make the top 10 was the slimmest I’ve found yet. Ron English beat out Michigan’s Bob Shoop and his own co-worker, Florida cornerbacks coach Torrian Gray, by all of $1,500.

— The original version of this article omitted Clinkscale’s raise at Kentucky.

— 40 entries in, the number of non-SEC/Clemson coaches on the list: 9.

Ryan Day getting extension, raise at Ohio State

By Zach Barnett -      February 25, 2020

Ryan Day’s first 17 games as Ohio State’s head coach have seen 16 wins and one close, controversial loss, and so it’s no surprise when the Buckeyes announced Tuesday morning they have signed up for more.  Day has agreed to a 3-year extension that keeps him under contract through 2026, pending board approval.

After earning a comparatively modest $4.5 million in 2019, Day’s salary was bumped to $5.375 million retroactive to Feb. 1. Beginning July 1, Day will be paid an annualized rate of $6 million through Jan. 31, 2021. The university will also contribute $1 million to his retirement fund on Dec. 31.

Day will then earn $6.5 million for the 2021 season and $7.6 million in 2022. Compensation for Feb. 1, 2023 will be determined at a later date, but you can bet it’ll be a lot.

Terms of James Franklin’s new contract announced

By Zach Barnett -     February 26, 2020

James Franklin signed a new 6-year contract back in December, and on Wednesday the Nittany Lions announced the terms of that deal.

The contract, which helpfully runs from Jan. 1, 2020 through Dec. 31, 2025, will start at $5.4 million per year and rise to a top end of $6.5 million. The school will also pay an annual retention bonus each Dec. 31 — starting at $300,000 in 2020, then moving to $500,000 thereafter — while also making a $1 million annual loan to Franklin’s life insurance policy.

All told, Franklin will earn $6.7 million in total compensation for coaching Penn State in 2020.  The 6-year contract is worth $44.2 million in guaranteed compensation in sum, an average of $7.37 million per year and topping out at $8 million in 2025.

Franklin’s bonus structure runs from $100,000 for winning a Big Ten Coach of the Year award to $800,000 for leading the Nittany Lions to a national championship.  The coach would owe $5 million if leaving the school in 2020 and nothing if he left in 2025. The school-end buyout is his total guaranteed pay for that current year multiplied by the number of contract years remaining.

Franklin, 48, is 56-23 with one Big Ten title, three New Year’s Six appearances and three AP Top 10 finishes in six seasons leading the program. Since 2016, Penn State is 42-11 overall and 28-8 in Big Ten play.

It’s a rare breed at the college level, quarterbacks coaches who simply… coach quarterbacks. The majority of staffs have the guy who coordinates the offense also coach the quarterbacks, for obvious reasons. But not all of them.  For obvious reasons, quarterbacks coaches do not rake in the cash that their position-specific peers do: They’re responsible for one of the 22 players on the field in any given play.  So while these guys are earning the least of their peers in gross income, they’re making the most per capita. Good work if you can get it.

The highest-paid quarterbacks coaches in college football: 2020 edition

By Zach Barnett -    February 26, 2020

1. Ken O’Keefe, Iowa — $625,000
2. Brandon Streeter, Clemson — $590,000
3. Bush Hamdan, Missouri — $550,000
4. Darin Hinshaw, Kentucky — $500,000
5. Brian Johnson, Florida — $451,000
6. Bobby Bentley, South Carolina — $400,000
6. Dana Bible, UCLA — $400,000
6. Joel Gordon, Iowa State — $400,000
9. Mario Verduzco, Nebraska — $375,000
10. Jason Beck, Virginia — $350,000
10. Kurt Roper, NC State — $350,000 

Additional notes:

— Iowa’s O’Keefe was the third-highest paid QBs coach in college football a year ago. Dan Werner and Dave Warner (no relation) are no longer at South Carolina and Michigan State, respectively. O’Keefe

— Michigan’s Ben McDaniels netted a $40,000 raise from 2018 to 2019 and fell out of the top 10.

— Someone likely to join the top 10: Corey Dennis. Urban’s son-in-law was promoted to quarterbacks coach after Mike Yurcich left for Texas. Yurcich was the nation’s highest-paid quarterbacks coach (his salary was released after publication of our 2019 article) at $950,000, plus a $400,000 signing bonus. Dennis, promoted from within, won’t earn Yurcich money, but I’ll bet it’s above $350,000.

— Hamdan also coaches Mizzou’s receivers.

"Ohio State just paid….everybody"

By Scott Roussel -   March 9, 2020

Four Ohio State assistant coaches will make over $1 million this season the program has announced, a first in college athletics.

  • Defensive coordinator Kerry Coombs will make $1.4 million.
  • Offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson will make $1.2 million.
  • Greg Mattison and Larry Johnson will each make $1.133 million.

“I couldn’t have been more impressed with the performance of our coaching staff under the direction of Ryan Day in 2019,” Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said in a statement. “What they accomplished both on the field and in the way they led and mentored our student-athletes was exemplary. We look forward to much of the same in 2020.”

In addition to those four, each of Ryan Day’s assistants will earn more in 2019 than they did in 2020. While Kevin Wilson’s $250,000 raise is the biggest among the assistants in real dollars, Corey Dennis netted the biggest jump in moving from the quality control staff to quarterbacks coach, going from $105,000 to $300,000 in salary. (Dennis replaced Mike Yurcich, who turned in his $950,000 salary to become the offensive coordinator at Texas.)  In all, eight assistants will earn at least $500,000, trailing only Clemson’s nine. The Buckeyes ($8 million) are slightly behind Clemson’s $8.145 million in staff pay.

In conjunction with Ryan Day’s $875,000 raise, Ohio State will pay $13.375 million for its on-the-field coaching staff, a 14 percent increase from 2019.  From a contractual standpoint, Mattison and Johnson are in year two of their two year deals. Everyone else, except Tony Alford, has a 2-year deal beginning now. Alford, for some reason, only has a one year deal.  In total that is $8 million for the ten assistants.

Coach 2019 Pay 2020 Pay Change
Ryan Day (HC) $4.5 million $5.375 million $875,000 (19%)
Kerry Coombs (DC/DBs) $950,000* $1.4 million $450,000 (47%)
Kevin Wilson (OC/TEs) $950,000 $1.2 million $250,000 (26%)
Greg Mattison (co-DC) $1.1 million $1.133 million $33,000 (3%)
Larry Johnson (DL) $900,000 $1.133 million $233,000 (26%)
Greg Studrawa (OL) $600,000 $700,000 $100,000 (17%)
Tony Alford (Asst. HC/RBs) $600,000 $618,000 $18,000 (3%)
Brian Hartline (WRs) $360,000 $550,000 $190,000 (53%)
Al Washington (LBs) $500,000 $515,000 $15,000 (3%)
Matt Barnes (STC/Asst. DBs) $350,000 $450,000 $100,000 (29%)
Corey Dennis $105,000 $300,000 $195,000 (186%)
Total staff pay $11.745 million $13.375 million $1.63 million (14%)

Did I see that Ark State just extended their head coach?

Who the fuck needs a contract extension right now?

Maybe because their football coach is a class act who continued to coach in 2019 immediately after losing his wife to a battle with cancer in August??

(Not a good take @Beau Vine  )

Here is what happens when:
a) a school can't get their prime candidate and have to look like they aren't being turned down across the board
b) as a head coach you go 2-3 in the NFL (interim, 9 years ago) and 5-7 for a bad PAC-12 program in 2019 (yup - 2 HC stints, totaling about 13 months)

I have nothing against him, hope he does a great job and earns all of it and gets an extension for his B1G titles and being in the playoffs  🙄
But being paid virtually the same as Day is crazy, and more than Fitzgerald (best coach in the B1G), Leach and Patterson is nuts....but that is how this business goes

Michigan: Jim Harbaugh will take a 10 percent pay cut, starting Aug. 1.

 

Iowa: Iowa has cut 15 percent of its budget for its fiscal year 2021, including major pay cuts for Kirk Ferentz and senior-level staff.

Employees earning $200,000 or above will see at least a 10 percent cut, those earning $150,000 above will see a 7.5 percent cut, above $100,000 will lose 5 percent, above $50,143 will lose 3 percent, and all others will lose 2 percent. 

Additionally, senior-level employees will take more than 10 percent off their salaries:

— Kirk Ferentz will join three other head Hawkeyes in taking 15 percent off his base salary. An amendment signed in 2017 put Ferentz’s base salary at $2.77 million for the coming season, and 15 percent of that equates to $415,500.

— AD Gary Barta will slice 30 percent off his overall compensation. He signed a 3-year extension in 2019 that brought his salary to $1 million, meaning he’ll lose $300,000.

 

Washington: Head coach Jimmy Lake will take at least a 5 percent pay cut and assistant coaches will take minimum 3 percent cuts, as part of department-wide cost cutting. Similar cuts will be applied to all Husky teams.

From FootballScoop:

Oklahoma: The Sooners announced that due to COVID, employees earning a salary of $1 million per year or more are subject to a 10% salary reduction this year. Head coach Lincoln Riley made $6 million last season and the 2019 USA Today salary database lists DC Alex Grinch ($1.4 million) as the only other Sooners assistant that salary reduction would apply to.
