New offensive coordinator Brian Daboll is on pace to make $1.2 million a year, The Tuscaloosa News has learned.
Daboll, whose hiring was announced by the university February 20th, earned $100,000 in March. His contract has yet to be formally approved by the UA board of trustee’s compensation committee. The committee normally meets in the summer.
His predecessor, Steve Sarkisian, was scheduled to make $1 million a season before he left to take the same position with the Atlanta Falcons. Lane Kiffin, who served as Alabama’s offensive coordinator for three seasons (2014-16), made $1.4 million in 2016.
According to the USA Today assistant coach database, 12 assistant coaches earned more than a million in salary in 2016, including both Alabama coordinators (Kiffin and Jeremy Pruitt).
New coach salaries
First-year wide receivers coach Mike Locksley will make approximately $600,000 after earning $45,000 as an offensive analyst in 2016.
New tight ends/special teams coach Joe Pannunzio will earn approximately $378,000.
All new contracts are subject to approval by the UA board of trustees.
