Some of y’all saw the news yesterday about this.
UGA football defensive coordinator Dan Lanning is one of three assistants on Kirby Smart’s staff that got a boost in salary since the end of last season.
Lanning, who turned down a chance to become Texas defensive coordinator, got a $450,000 raise to bring his annual salary to $1.75 million, according to information obtained Wednesday by the Athens Banner-Herald in an open records request…
Georgia running backs coach Dell McGee got a $125,000 raise to take his pay to $800,000.
Tight ends coach Todd Hartley’s salary increased $50,000 to $450,000.
New defensive backs coach Jahmile Addae will make $500,000.
That’s $100,000 less than Georgia paid Charlton Warren who left as DBs coach to become Indiana defensive coordinator.
Yeah, that bad ol’ pandemic has really put a crimp in athletic department expenses.
On top of that…
If that’s not the highest salary in the country for an analyst, it’s gotta be close. But that’s not even the most impressive part. This is.
That’s over $21 million to a guy whose career record as a head coach is 55-51. Cue the BoDeans.
