With the addition of five new coaches, FSU will spend $209,861 more on its nine-man coaching staff in 2007 than last season. The salaries represent base only and do not include additional or supplemental income.
Five coaches will earn at least $200,000 in base salary, headed by defensive coordinator/associate head coach Mickey Andrews, who receives a raise of more than $7,000 to $215,105 annually. Andrews’ base salary was boosted after Jimbo Fisher was hired as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for $215,000. Fisher’s total package, though, will be the highest among the assistants at about $425,000. Andrews was the only coach to earn a base salary above $200,000 last season.
The biggest raise of the holdover coaches went to defensive line coach Odell Haggins, who was boosted to $200,000 from $154,680. Haggins’ base salary equals that of newcomers Rick Trickett (offensive line/assistant head coach) and Chuck Amato (defensive line/executive associate head coach).
Defensive ends coach Jody Allen and tight ends coach/recruiting coordinator John Lilly each received raises to $140,000. Newcomers Lawrence Dawsey (receivers) and Dexter Carter (running backs) are the lowest paid coaches, both earning $130,000.
