Kevin Sumlin was announced as Maryland’s new co-offensive coordinator and tight ends coach on Wednesday. Shortly after, the details of his contract were made available.

Sumlin will earn $450,000 annually on his 2-year deal with the Terrapins, per The Washington Post’s Patrick Stevens. That includes a base pay of $300,000 and another $150,000 in supplemental pay.

In addition, Sumlin is getting $15,000 and 30 hotel nights to cover moving expenses — he spent the last year in Houston working as a coach in the USFL — and a car allowance.

In the event of a firing, Sumlin would be owed his full remaining base pay. If the former A&M and Arizona head coach were to be offered a head coaching job at either the FBS or NFL level, he’d be able to leave free and clear. Should he leave for any other reason, he’d owe the following:

  • Prior to May 31, 2023: 100% of his base pay
  • May 31, 2023 – final regular-season game of 2024: 40% of his base pay
