Florida football coach Will Muschamp is getting a raise that will put his salary to just under $3 million a year. The Florida athletic department confirmed the deal Friday on a contract that runs through 2017.
In two seasons at Florida, Muschamp is 18-8. The Gators are coming off an 11-2 campaign in 2012.
Muschamp is now the league’s seventh-highest paid coach. Alabama’s Nick Saban, LSU’s Les Miles, South Carolina’s Steve Spurrier, Georgia’s Mark Richt, Arkansas’ Bret Bielema, and Texas A&M’s Kevin Sumlin all make more with Saban topping the list, pulling in more than $5 million a year.
