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.

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. Facebook had been online for seven months. George W. Bush ...
