Billy Napier is the new Florida coach, and he’s getting a hefty pay raise.

Naturally, he’s getting quite a bump from the salary he was making at Louisiana. Per reports on Saturday night, he’s now making nearly 3 times what he made at Louisiana.

The reports say the new contract is for 7 years and is worth a total of $51.8 million. Napier will start with a $7.1 million salary this coming year and then will receive a $100,000 pay raise every year of the contract:

Will Napier live up to the new contract? He’ll take over a Gator program that had a terrible 2021 season.

But, Napier comes highly recommended. He’s been a hot name on the coaching carousel in recent years. We’ll see how he fares in Gainesville next year.
