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



Tuesday is the weekly media day at UGA, with Mark Richt's press conference set to kick off a busy day at noon.

As usual, the live thread will be active on The Junkyard all day.



The SEC has made another statement about punishments for the targeting rule, and South Carolina will not have DB D.J. Swearinger for the Missouri game this weekend.
