Based on what’s in his contract (h/t Coaches Hot Seat Blog), pretty damned badly. He’s making much less money than Leach was earning, not to mention even that much less than what he was being paid at his Auburn gig.
“It was really a no-brainer. What really pushed me to come to UGA was, so I could compete against that [Georgia] defense every day [in practice]. I might have to play in 12 games and in the SEC, but I would be going up against the best defense, every day in practice. Also, seeing all the defensive players who came back [for their senior year], it showed me they wanted to come back and win a championship.”– Jamie Newman, UGASports, 6/20/20
