Former Notre Dame coach and new Florida offensive coordinator Charlie Weis is getting a large pay raise from the school [go ahead, insert size joke here] in the form of $2.6 meeellion over the next three years.
Not bad considering he hasn’t called a play in Gainesville yet.
Weis is set to receive $765,000 this year, and the raise of $100k for the next two seasons will make Weis the highest paid assistant under Will Muschamp. Weis also received a $100,000 signing bonus and receives a $10,000 supplement for wearing Nike apparel.
Amazingly, Weis’ salary as an assistant is more than his annual base salary at Notre Dame, which according to a report from the Chicago Tribune, topped out at $649,000. Of course, that didn’t include the $850,000 from Adidas and $1,303,000 from media appearances.
Muschamp’s staff as a whole is on par to receive nearly $5 million through their contract negotiations.
