BOT approves pay raises for assistant coaches

PAY THE MAN! What's that? They did? Very good. - Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE

All assistants receive significant pay raises; Lorenzo Ward's contract now three years.

A day after Steve Spurrier's pay raise was announced, the BOT approved pay bumps for all assistant coaches. While nothing's certain, it now seems likely that the South Carolina coaching staff will not experience any offseason turnover.

Mangus, as some of you may recall, was arrested in 2011 for a public Upstate whizzin' that inspired a snarky tweet by Tahj Boyd (0-5 vs. South Carolina as a rostered player). Due to the incident, Mangus was barred from receiving a raise these past two seasons. That penalty has now expired, and Mangus' salary has nearly doubled. He's also slated to receive a $25,000 raise each of the next two seasons. Party at G.A.'s crib, y'all!

The rest of the staff also received raises, and will enjoy $20,000 salary increases over the next two seasons, except for defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward, who will earn $750,000 for the next three seasons should he stay with the team. Here's the overall breakdown:

Coach Position 2013 salary 2014 salary 2015 salary
Lorenzo Ward Defensive Coordinator $650,000 $750,000 $750,000*
Steve Spurrier, Jr. WRs/Co-Offensive Coordinator/Recruiting Coordinator $325,000 $380,000 $400,000
Deke Adams Defensive Line $225,000 $300,000 $320,000
Kirk Botkin Linebackers/Spurs $225,000 $300,000 $320,000
Grady Brown Secondary/Assistant ST Coordinator $180,000 $250,000 $270,000
Shawn Elliott Offensive Line/Co-Offensive Coordinator $325,000 $430,000 $450,000
Joe Robinson Special Teams $325,000 $350,000 $375,000
G.A. Mangus Quarterbacks $175,000 $295,000 $320,000
Everette Sands Running Backs $215,000 $250,000 $270,000

(*Ward will make $750,000 in 2016)

By the way, Steve Spurrier's contract now runs through 2018. That's right, class of 2014 recruit, right on through your senior year! Also::

Our suggestion? Continue "The Steve Spurrier Show" as a subscription-only, late night program. I would pay an irresponsible amount for membership, as would you all.

What do you suggest for Spurrier's post-coaching role with the university?
