Contract details emerge for Minnesota co-offensive coordinators Simon, Harbaugh
Minnesota will pay both of its co-offensive coordinators $600,000 in 2023, according to The Pioneer Press’ Andy Greder.
Earlier this month, Matt Simon and Greg Harbaugh were elevated from their roles as position coaches on the Gophers’ 2022 staff following the departure of Kirk Ciarrocca to Rutgers. Simon coached wideouts before being handed play-calling responsibilities. Harbaugh added the co-OC title and moved from tight ends to quarterbacks.
According to Greder, Simon made $430,000 last season while Harbaugh earned $230,000. Ciarrocca made a reported $625,000 in 2022 and was set to see that number increase to $900,000 on Mar. 23, 2023, under the terms of an extension he signed in December.
Greder also reported — through an open records request — that new corners coach Nick Monroe will make $400,000 in his first year with the program.
