Clemson shows football staff the money (AUDIO)

Tony Elliott

The cost of winning football national championships at Clemson continues to rise, and that seems to be fine with everyone in orange and white.  Coming on the heels of a second title in three years, Dabo Swinney’s assistants were awarded by the school’s board of trustees Friday with pay raises with co-offensive coordinators Tony Elliott and Jeff Scott joining the millionaire’s club.

Elliott and Scott each received increases of $150,000 to push their annual compensation to a million dollars.  They join defensive coordinator Brent Venables in the seven-figures club.  Venables’ salary was set a two million dollars per season prior to the 2018 campaign.

Here’s a breakdown of the rest of the on-field coaches’ salaries:

Todd Bates increase of $75,.000 to $375,000

Robbie Caldwell increase of $30,000 to $570,000

Michael Conn increase $30,000 to $400,000

Lemanski Hall increase $50,000 to $350,000

Danny Pearman increase $25,000 to $505,000

Mike Reed increase $55,000 to $495,000

Brandon Streeter increase $45,000 to $500,000

Also, strength coach Joey Batson was increased by $100,000 to $600,000

Clemson AD Dan Radakovich met with the media following the board of trustees meeting and addressed questions about the salary increases as well as the on-going investigation into the three failed drug tests on the football team prior to the Cotton Bowl.
