A source with familiarity of the football coaching contracts confirmed their basic yearly payouts on Thursday.
As expected, Auburn coach Gene Chizik will make a basic salary of $2 million per season. In a surprise move, though, defensive coordinator Ted Roof pocketed the biggest yearly earning.
Remember, Roof is a former head coach and can probably demand a higher pricetag.
Here are the salaries (per year):
Ted Roof, defensive coordinator: $370,000
Gus Malzahn, offensive coordinator: $350,000
Trooper Taylor, receivers coach: $320,000
Tracy Rocker, defensive line coach: $300,000
Jeff Grimes, offensive line coach: $290,000
Curtis Luper, running backs coach: $260,000
Jay Boulware, tight ends coach/special teams coach: $180,000
Open records requests for the contracts have not yet been returned -- that is likely partly because they haven't been finalized yet.
