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 Ste ...

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.
