Nussmeier had his contract extended through the 2018 season and will earn $832,725 per year. Nussmeier was paid $540,000 by Florida during the 2016 season. He also earned just more than $300,000 each of the last two years from his former employer Michigan, where he served as the Wolverines’ offensive coordinator in 2014 before coming to Florida. Michigan was still obligated to pay Nussmeier his base salary because he left following the firing of Michigan head coach Brady Hoke.

The rest of the coaches’ contract extensions and salaries are below:

  • Co-defensive coordinator and defensive line coach Chris Rumph was extended through the 2019 season and will make $590,000 per year. That’s a $100,000 raise from last season. Rumph is the only assistant coach who is extended past the 2018 season.
  • Special teams coordinator and tight ends coach Greg Nord was extended through the 2018 season and will make $410,000 per year. That’s a $20,000 raise from last season.
  • Wide receivers coach Kerry Dixon was extended through the 2018 season and will make $290,000 per year. That’s a $15,000 raise from last season.
  • Linebackers coach Tim Skipper was extended through the 2018 season and will make $446,000 per year. That’s a $6,000 raise from last season.
