NCAA: Florida Gators Give Coach Will Muschamp $250K Raise

Jul 29 2013, 1:31am CDT | by

The Florida Gators rewarded head football coach Will Muschamp with a $250,000 raise.

Florida Gators head football coach Will Muschamp was given a $250,000 raise by the university. 

According to the Associated Press via Fox Sports Florida, Muschamp's raise was approved by Florida president Bernie Machen and athletic director Jeremy Foley in light of an 11-win 2012 season and a Sugar Bowl berth. He now ranks seventh among SEC football coaches in the pay scale, earning $2.928 million anually through the 2017 season.

Nick Saban of the Alabama Crimson Tide is the top earner in the division with a $5.47 million annual pay. 

Foley said both he and President Machen believe in Muschamp and that the raise would be more appropraite for the head coach's market value. 

"Dr. Machen and I believe very strongly in Coach Muschamp and his leadership and we felt it was appropriate to adjust his salary to be more in line with his market value."

Chip Patterson of CBS Sports notes the Gators' 2012 and 2013 recruiting classes have enjoyed a great deal of success under Muschamp's leadership. They were ranked fourth and third, respectively, in the 247 Sports Composite Ranking.   

The 2012 SEC Coach of the Year has a 10-6 record in the SEC, per Patterson.

Steve Spurrier laughs off rumors of Florida return

Oct 21 2014 12:15pm CDT | Source: SBNation

The head coach has other plans in mind when his South Carolina days are over. Florida head coach Will Muschamp's job security is at all-time low after a humiliating and historic loss to Missouri. He's still technically employed in the position, but that hasn't stopped speculation as to who will take the high-profile job next. One name (mostly jokingly) brought up is current South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier, the all-time winningest head coach for both the G ...

LSU Football: Tigers Poised for Breakout Game vs. Florida

Oct 10 2014 9:57am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

LSU's matchup against Florida on Saturday will be the first time both teams face each other unranked in the Les Miles era, but that does not mean there will be a shortage of talent. The Tigers and Gators annually put players in the NFL and have enough talent to beat any team on any given week. Despite the immense amount of playmakers on hand, both programs have underperformed. Miles is looking to avoid his f ...

The former five-star prospect for the Gators delivered against a rival and is your national Freshman of the Week. Creating the turnover that led to the only touchdown scored by the Florida Gators on Saturday against the Tennessee Volunteers in Knoxville is the definition of an impact play. And that's why Florida freshman cornerback Jalen Tabor is SB Nation's True Freshman of Week 6. The weekend before, the Gators secondary had been torched by the Cr ...

LSU and Florida have average football teams in 2014. For the first time in the Les Miles era, the two traditional powerhouses will meet with both teams unranked.    LSU is 4-2 and winless in conference play. The Tigers have been dominated on both sides of the ball by Auburn and Mississippi State. Miles will look to avoid his first 0-3 start in SEC play in his illustrious career.  Florida is 3-1 on the season, wit ...

LSU Football: Game-by-Game Predictions for the Month of October

Oct 3 2014 9:06am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

LSU's schedule for the month of October is brutal, and that is putting it nicely.  The Tigers will play four games this month, two of which are on the road. Head coach Les Miles must win at least two to have a chance of keeping his streak of 10-win seasons alive.  LSU lost its conference opener against Mississippi State weeks ago. The Tigers were outclassed in every aspect of the game. This month, they will play two teams currently ranked higher than the Bulld ...

Why Tennessee Will Stop Its Nine-Year Losing Streak to Florida

Sep 30 2014 4:35pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Tennessee is going to beat Florida on Saturday. Finally. The last time that actually happened—not just boasted about by optimistic Volunteers fans—was in 2004. That season, UT kicker James Wilhoit booted a 50-yard field goal to beat UF 30-28 in Neyland Stadium after missing an extra point. To put into perspective how long it's been, that was three years before the first iPhone hit the shelves. Fa ...
