The Clemson Board of Trustees accepted $150,000 raises for 2 football assistant coaches Friday, pushing their salaries to $1 million.
Sources suggested ESPN and the Charleston Post and Courier that Tigers co-offensive coordinators Tony Elliott and Jeff Scott had been the benefactors of the hefty raises.
Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables had a $2.2 million wage in 2018, which means the Tigers have three assistant coaches making not lower than $1 million.
The board moreover accepted raises for quarterbacks coach Brandon Streeter, defensive tackles coach Todd Bates, defensive ends coach Lemanski Hall, offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell, safeties coach Micky Conn, tight ends coach Danny Pearman and defensive backs coach Mike Reed.
The Tigers have acquired two of the ultimate three College Football Playoff nationwide championships, along with a 44-16 thrashing of Alabama on Jan. 7 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.
Tigers coach Dabo Swinney, who makes $6.5 million, owns a 116-30 report and has a 9-5 mark in bowl video video games all through his 11-year tenure on the college.
