Morning Coffee: Salary adjustments

Tuesday, September 18

Don't call it a raise, just a salary restructuring.

UGA is now beginning the process of releasing salary figures for assistant coaches this season. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, there were minor increases for several coaches as UGA moved money around re-appropriate longevity bonuses.

Per those new figures and a recent raise for Todd Grantham, here's where it now stands for the Bulldogs' staff ...

Todd Grantham ---- $825,000
Mike Bobo ------- $335,000
Rodney Garner -- $300,000
Kirk Olivadotti- $250,000*
Tony Ball ------ $210,000
Bryan McClendon- $210,000
Will Friend ---- $210,000
John Lilly ----- $210,000
Scott Lakatos -- $180,000*

* - According to the Athens Banner-Herald, salary action requests have yet to be processed for Olivadotti and Lakatos, so their totals could be higher as well
