Report: Details of Steve Sarkisian's contract at Texas released
Even though Alabama OC Steve Sarkisian was one of the highest-paid coordinators in the country in 2020, he’ll still be getting a hefty raise when he takes over as the head coach at Texas.
No, he won’t be making the $6 million Tom Herman made in 2020, but he’ll be paid very competitively as he tries to lead the Longhorns back to the top of the Big 12.
Per 247Sports, Sarkisian’s contract with Texas is worth $34.2 million over 6 years:
The University of Texas and Sarkisian have agreed on a six-year, $34.2 million contract, per Horns247 insider Chip Brown with a starting salary of $5.2 million for 2021 with $200,000 increases every year thereafter.
Sarkisian will coach the Crimson Tide on Monday for the College Football Playoff title game against Ohio State. Then, he’ll be off to Austin to get to work on his first year with the Longhorns.
