The University of North Carolina will pay its football coaching staff $4.07 million during its first year on the job, according to figures the university released on Monday. That includes the $2.13 million UNC will pay to head coach Larry Fedora, whom the university introduced in December as the successor to interim head coach Everett Withers.
Fedora’s salary includes a one-time payment of $400,000, which the university was to provide to him by March 15, according to his contract. Blake Anderson, Dan Disch and Vic Koenning are UNC’s three highest-paid assistants. They will each receive $250,000 annually.
Anderson is the Tar Heels’ offensive coordinator, while Disch and Koenning will lead the UNC defense. The rest of the salaries for UNC’s assistants are as follows:
--Defensive line coach Deke Adams, outside linebackers/special teams coach David Duggan and running backs coach Randy Jordan: $185,000.
--Passing game coordinator/receivers coach Gunter Brewer: $175,000.
--Head strength and conditioning coach Lou Hernandez: 140,000.
--Tight ends coach Walt Bell: $80,000.
According to USA Today’s college football coaches salary database, UNC’s total staff salary of $4.07 million would have ranked sixth among ACC public schools during the 2011 season. Those rankings could change this season because of raises and changes in coaching staffs, among other possible factors.
