Salaries released for new assistants

Will Friend replaced Stacy Searels as UGA's offensive line coach.

New Georgia inside linebackers coach Kirk Olivadotti will make a salary of $250,000 with the Bulldogs, while new offensive line coach Will Friend will make $200,000, according to documents released by UGA.

Olivadotti's salary would make him fourth on the staff behind Todd Grantham ($750,000), Mike Bobo ($325,000) and Rodney Garner ($290,000), and it is $60,000 more than what Warren Belin made last season.

Meanwhile, Stacy Searels -- the coach Friend is replacing -- made $290,000 last season before departing for Texas.

Belin joined the coaching staff of the NFL's Carolina Panthers, while UGA reached into the NFL for his replacement in Olivadotti, who comes from the Washington Redskins.

Going off 2010 salaries for the remaining members of Mark Richt's on--field coaching staff, here's how the new staff would rank:

Todd Grantham, $750,000
Mike Bobo, $325,000
Rodney Garner, $290,000
