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.

Saban had his team take the challenge, too. If you are on social media at all, you know about the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, which aims to raise awareness and money for ALS research. Alabama coach Nick Saban was nominated by The Band Perry (and probably others) to take the challenge, and he did so with his whole team. Saban discussed the importance of ALS research to the program, particularly because alum Kevin Turner is currently fighting it. And as his reward ...
