Florida reveals 2020 raises for Dan Mullen’s assistants
Florida had an impressive 2019 season, which apparently led to increased compensation for head coach Dan Mullen’s staff.
After going 11-2 last year, the Gators spent $490,000 on pay raises for their assistant coaches, according to a report by Edgar Thompson of the Orlando Sentinel. These contracts were signed Feb. 1 per the report.
Here’s how much each member of Mullen’s staff will make in 2020, according to Thompson:
Offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Brian Johnson: $540,000 ($100,000 raise)
Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham: $1.79 million
Passing game coordinator/wide receivers coach Billy Gonzales: $620,000 ($30,000 raise)
Running game coordinator/offensive line coach John Hevesy: $620,000 ($30,000 raise)
Running backs coach/special teams coordinator Greg Knox: $485,000 ($45,000 raise)
Defensive line coach David Turner: $465,000 ($100,000 raise)
Linebackers coach Christian Robinson: $290,000 ($175,000 raise)
Cornerbacks coach Torrian Gray: $450,000 ($10,000 raise)
Safeties coach Ron English: $440,000
In addition to those raises, Thompson reported that Florida strength and conditioning coach Nick Savage will now make $450,000, a raise of $150,000.
Not only did Johnson get a raise, but he was also promoted to offensive coordinator. Gonzales and Hevesy previously served as co-offensive coordinators, but they’ll now serve as the passing game coordinator and running game coordinator, respectively. Johnson (quarterbacks), Gonzales (wide receivers) and Hevesy (offensive line) will also coach their respective position groups.
Now, Florida will look to produce more positive results in 2020. The No. 5 Gators are set to open the season on the road Saturday at Ole Miss at noon ET on ESPN.
