The Alabama defensive coordinator saw his salary raised to $1.15 million per year from $950,000 during Tuesday’s University of Alabama board of trustees meeting.
He’ll bump up to $1.35 million in the final two years of his three-year contract, which was extended through February of 2016.
Head coach Nick Saban saw his bonus structure adjusted for the onset of the new, four-team playoff format, which starts in 2014. He will get $200,000 for making the semifinals, $300,000 for making the final and $400,000 for winning it.
Offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier saw his pay raised from $590,000 to $680,000 per year and his contract extended into 2016.
