Greg Mattison making $750,000 as Michigan's defensive coordinator
New Michigan football coach Brady Hoke made a splash when he coaxed Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Greg Mattison to fill the same role on the Wolverines' coaching staff.
Associated Press sports writer Larry Lage reported today that Michigan made a big financial commitment to get him.
Mattison's base salary is $250,000 and he'll make $500,000 in additional compensation for an annual salary of $750,000. There's also an opportunity for bonuses up to $150,000 if Michigan wins a Big Ten title. The AP obtained Mattison's two-year contract through a Freedom of Information Act request.
Offensive coordinator Al Borges is the second-highest paid assistant at $350,000 per year.
By comparison, the AP reports that defensive coordinator Greg Robinson made $273,000, and offensive coordinator Calvin Magee made $285,000 last season, under Rich Rodriguez.
