Another sign that it’s not Urban Meyer’s team anymore:
Florida is spending more on assistants than it is on first-year head coach Will Muschamp.
The Gators have committed $3.05 million to Muschamp’s nine-man coaching staff in 2011, according to contracts released Friday.
Offensive coordinator Charlie Weis signed a three-year deal worth $2.465 million. He will earn $765,000 in 2011, then $850,000 the next two years. Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn signed a two-year deal worth $1 million. He will get $490,000 in 2011, then $510,000 the following year…
Ol’ Charlie’s not making Malzahn money, but he’s doing alright there. I believe that makes him the third highest paid assistant coach in the SEC.
Not only that, but it looks like almost all of Florida’s staff works under multi-year deals now (a trend that did start under Meyer). I wonder if that’s something Greg McGarity will be forced to react to down the road.
