GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida is spending more on assistants than it is on first-year head coach Will Muschamp.
The Gators have committed $3.05 million to Muschamp's nine-man coaching staff in 2011, according to contracts released Friday.
Offensive coordinator Charlie Weis signed a three-year deal worth $2.465 million. He will earn $765,000 in 2011, then $850,000 the next two years. Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn signed a two-year deal worth $1 million. He will get $490,000 in 2011 and $510,000 the following year.
Muschamp agreed to a five-year deal worth $13.5 million, or $2.7 million annually. He assembled a staff with lots of NFL experience. He also paid them accordingly.
The staff will make about $300,000 more than last year's assistants.
