Bob Shoop and Brian Jean-Mary agreed to two-year deals with Michigan football, according to records obtained by the Free Press. 

Shoop, the former defensive coordinator at Mississippi State, signed a memorandum of understanding with U-M on Jan. 16, according to records obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request. Jean-Mary, the defensive coordinator at South Florida last season, signed a memorandum of understanding last Friday.

Shoop will make $450,000 in the first year of his deal and $550,000 in the second year.

Jean-Mary will make $415,000 in his first season and $450,000 in the second.

Both coaches will owe Michigan a buyout if they leave for another job before the contract expires, at a rate of 100% of their annual base salary.
