Florida Gators assistant coach contract details

As part of a public records request the University Athletic Association released the contract details for offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier as well as four other assistant coaches.

Nussmeier’s contract was extended through the 2018 season (January of 2019) and will earn $832,725. Nussmeier earned $540,000 from Florida last season while he was still on Michigan’s pay roll for a reported $300,000. Nussmeier served as the Wolverine’s offensive coordinator in 2014 before making the move to Gainesville. Nussmeier was left go after Brady Hoke was fired, so Michigan was on the hook for the reminder of his contract when he was not retained by the new coaching staff.

Co-defensive coordinator and defensive line coach Chris Rump received the longest extension, through the 2019 season (January 2020). Rumph received a $100,000 pay increase from $500,000 to $600,000 annually. Rumph received a $25,000 retention bonus in March and will see those retention bonuses increase if he is still on the staff to $75,000 in 2018 and $100,000 in March of 2018 and 2019 respectively.

Tight ends and special teams coach Greg Nord, linebackers coach Tim Skipper and receivers coach Kerry Dixon were all extended two years through the 2018 season. Nord will earn $420,000 in 2018. Skipper will make $456,000 and Dixon will be paid $300,000 this season.

In total Florida will pay its assistants approximately (not including bonuses for academics/reaching certain on-field milestones) $4.46 million in 2018. It’s an increase of approximately $70,825 from 2017.

Nick de la Torre
A South Florida native, Nick developed a passion for all things sports at a very young age. His love for baseball was solidified when he saw Al Leiter’s no-hitter for the Marlins live in May of 1996. He was able to play baseball in college but quickly realized there isn’t much of a market for short, slow outfielders that hit around the Mendoza line. Wanting to continue with sports in some capacity he studied journalism at the University of Central Florida. Nick got his first start in the business as an intern for a website covering all things related to the NFL draft before spending two seasons covering the Florida football team at Bleacher Report. That job led him to GatorCountry. When he isn’t covering Gator sports, Nick enjoys hitting way too many shots on the golf course, attempting to keep up with his favorite t.v. shows and watching the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins.
