Roof’s contract did not contain bonuses for division or conference championships or win totals, although it did have five statistically-based incentives, compared with Woody’s three.
The two assistants who joined Woody after previously serving at Wofford – Riase, the defensive line coach, and Wood, the safeties coach – both will earn $190,000 on one-year contracts, the standard length for Tech’s non-coordinator assistants. That places them near the bottom of the scale for coach Paul Johnson’s staff. Last season, quarterbacks and B-backs coach Craig Candeto was the low earner at $185,345.
Even with the increase in staff from nine assistants to 10, as permitted by the NCAA, Tech’s salary pool may dip slightly from last year, depending on the size of possible raises for the remaining staff. Riase will make $92,000 less than his predecessor, Mike Pelton, and Woody’s compensation is $225,000 less than Roof’s 2017 salary.
