Georgia doesn’t want to lose the SEC’s most underrated coordinator.
Offensive coordinator Mike Bobo received a contract extension through the 2016 season, after just signing a three-year extension last year. According to the AJC, Bobo didn’t receive a raise, just an extension. He’ll make $575,000 annually through 2016.
Bobo rarely gets the credit he deserves. Despite mounting injuries in 2013, Georgia’s offense still put up 36 points per game. He’s coached record-setting quarterbacks Aaron Murray and David Greene. He’s coached a first overall pick in Matt Stafford.
“It’s what Mark (Richt) wanted to do,” UGA Athletic Director Greg McGarity told the AJC. “Now Mike and (defensive coordinator) Jeremy Pruitt are on the same page as far as the duration of their contracts. That was important to Mark and we agreed to do that.”
For comparison, Florida’s new offensive coordinator Kurt Roper will make $590,000 per year.
Do you think Bobo is still underpaid?
