UT's Pruitt Salary More Than Boom

UT's Pruitt Salary More Than Boom

  • Being reported UT signed Pruitt to a 6 year deal for $4 million annually. That's more than the reported raise we are giving Muschamp.

    I think it's crazy for UT to pay that much for an unproven assistant. I also think it's crazy that Muschamp's current and even new deal will still be in the bottom half of the conference. Even if Boom gets bumped to $3.6 million, here's still in the bottom half (#7). Here's a look at coaches salaries:

    1.Jimbo Fisher (Texas A&M) $7.5 million annually

    2. Gus Malzahn (Auburn) $7.0 million annually

    3. Nick Saban (Alabama): $6,939,395

    4. Dan Mullen (Florida): $6.0 million annually

    5. Jeremy Pruitt (Tennessee): $4.0 million annually

    6. Kirby Smart (Georgia): $3,753,600

    7. Mark Stoops (Kentucky): $3,513,600

    8. Ed Oregon (LSU): $3.5 million annually

    8. Chad Morris (Arkansas): $3.5 million annually

    10. Will Muschamp (South Carolina): $3,002,500

    11. Matt Luke (Ole Miss): $3.0 million annually

    12. Joe Morehead (Miss State): $2.7 million annually

    13. Derek Mason (Vanderbilt): $2,556,877**

    14. Barry Odom (Missouri): $2,350,000

    Boom will get his if he produces. He’s not a flight risk at the moment so why pay more than market for him.

    So you think WM, who is on his second change, should make more than Smart who won the SEC in his second year?

    UT paid Pruitt what they did because they had to. After the Schiano fiasco, and the general cluster that search has been, no one was going there without it being a big pay day.

  • Aren't we in the process of giving him a raise right now?

    it is going to be a big pay day coming in......and a big pay day for butch jones and staff that will be going out.

    looking at the range of salaries it appears UT wanted to distinguish themselves from what they see as the lower ranks of jobs....so they are a cut above other pretty decent coaches

    but, given the payouts owed jones & company and the current staff, and likely some to the guy before jones for all i know.....well, they seem to have deep pockets.....and if the guy does not produce quick they will fry him too

    Smart is about to get paid.

  • Given the fiasco this search has been, I'd imagine that UT had to overpay in order to get someone to take the job.

  • What choice did they have? He had all the leverage - no one else wanted to coach that dumpster fire. And it's probably not enough given he'll have to put up with Fulmer's meddling.

    This, plus I’m 99% sure their Nike deal pays him a ton too.

  • Boom is set to get his soon. The upgrade in salary and benefits is in the works and very close to being done.

    Bonuses on bonuses, man it’s gotta be great being a HC

    This. Had to sweeten the deal, so to speak.

    Pruitt: "I'm not taking this job, unless you make it worth my time. You guys suck."

    TN: "Ok."

    I imagine the conversation went something like that.

  • All this should show everyone how much money is truly in the coffers at these universities. And yet tuition continues to increase 10-20% per year! Complete B.S. in my opinion! I love football and all sports , but there is no way a state employee should be making 7 million a year!

    used to clinic with Chavis and Dan Brooks at Tenn. UT has deep pockets and they spend it!
    A lot of times, IMO, illegally

  • The sign of a good contract for any sports employee (player of coach) is one that looks right at the time of signing, but proves to be a steal for the employer during the life of the contract.

    We have a good contract with Muschamp and it was fair when signed. We are already giving a raise. If he continues his good performance, we will reward accordingly.

    Dang some of y'all must be terrible with finances.

    Florida is paying $6mil to a guy who has a 33-39 SEC record.

    I'm not taking anything away from Mullen. He's a good coach, but that is insane.

    UTk is just desperate.

  • More Utk pays him, less they have for assistants. I’m fine with it.

  • Tenn paying both a clusterF premium and a Phil Fulmer backstabber as AD premium. Surprised it's so low.

  • This looks about right to me. If he keeps making progress, they will pay him.

    The athletic department budget is separate from the general university fund. USC athletics has donated millions of dollars to the university in the past. Nick Saban is probably with $20M a year to Alabama. It’s rather ironic that someone on a college football message board is essentially saying we place too much value in intercollegiate athletics. If you don’t like how much coaches make, stop attending games, watching on tv, buying merchandise, etc.

    Or you could enjoy football and think its stupid people get that paid that much money. You could even think it should go to the kids. That's a popular thing for people to think these days.

    Smart is going to get a big raise. Count on it. So, no, I don't think Muschamp should or will make more than Smart.
