One more tidbit from that Chip Towers piece about Georgia’s new staff:
Chaney’s addition along with the hiring of Derrick Ansley as defensive coordinator and Tee Martin as wide receivers coach and some other staff moves mean that Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt is now paying his staff $800,000 more than Georgia is ($6.045 million). That’s primarily due to coordinator pay. Chaney ($1.6 million), Ansley ($1 million) and Chris Rumph ($805,000) all have multiyear contracts and make $3.4 million annually between them.
Georgia’s three coordinators are due $2.25 million in the next year.
There’s one thing you can say about Tennessee. Bang for the buck has never been a concern in Knoxville.
