Will Muschamp's Florida Contract Worth $2.7 Million Per Year

According to a Gainesville Sun report that’s been confirmed by the Associated Press, new Florida Gators head coach Will Muschamp’s contract calls for him to be paid $13.5 million over five years, or $2.7 million per year.

Muschamp will likely be just about the tenth-highest-paid college football coach in the country next year, judging by this year’s salaries. That’s about $1.3 million less than Florida was paying previous coach Urban Meyer, but about three times Muschamp’s Texas Longhorns salary, according to the AP. There’s no telling what Texas had been planning to pay coach-in-waiting Muschamp once he took over for Mack Brown.

It’s also the second-highest coaching salary that’s been reportedly offered in the SEC this year, a couple Bentleys shy of the $3 million offer Vandy is believed to have waved at Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn.

Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley is expected to release Muschamp’s contract details at some point Tuesday.
