Details emerge for Michigan's staff raises and new contracts, per report
Jim Harbaugh saw some significant changes to his staff this offseason between departures and promotions, and some of those compensation details have emerged.
Former offensive coordinator Josh Gattis and defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald left for the Miami Hurricanes and Baltimore Ravens.
Harbaugh’s assistant coaches all received new contracts with pay raises in recent months, which made Sherrone Moore and first-year defensive coordinator Jesse Minter the highest-paid on staff, according to a report from MLive.com.
Minter’s three-year, $2.75 million deal will pay him a $900,000 salary in 2022, but Moore — who will help guide the Wolverines’ offense with Matt Weiss in 2022, in addition to coaching the offensive line — received a substantial compensation boost from $575,000 last year to $900,000 in 2022.
Moore’s new three-year deal includes an annual salary of $900,000 plus lucrative performance bonuses for Michigan finishing top 2 in scoring offense in the Big Ten ($100,000), top 10 in scoring offense in FBS ($100,000), and each regular-season win above 8 ($50,000 each).
Weiss, meanwhile, signed a new three-year contract on Feb. 24 that boosted his pay from $600,000 to $850,000 per year, with identical performance bonuses.
Steve Clinkscale, Michigan’s defensive backs coach and passing game coordinator, was promoted to co-defensive coordinator, and his new three-year deal will pay him an annual salary of $850,000, up from the $700,000 he made last year.
Here are other raises:
- Special teams coordinator Jay Harbaugh, who moved over to coaching the safeties, signed a new two-year deal that will pay him an annual salary of $600,000, an increase from the $430,000 he earned in 2021.
- Running backs coach Mike Hart signed a new two-year contract that will pay him $550,000, up from the $430,000 in 2021.
- Linebackers coach George Helow ($500,000) and Ron Bellamy ($350,000), who moved from safeties to receivers, both signed new two-year contracts that include $50,000 and $25,000 raises in Year 2, respectively.
