Clemson football assistants receive over $1 million in raises


by -

The Clemson Board of Trustees approved salaries increases for the Clemson football coaching and support staff on Friday.

Defensive coordinator Brent Venables will receive a $75,000 raise and will earn $1,425,000 in 2016. Venables oversaw a defense that led the nation in tackles for loss.

The biggest boosts go to co-offensive coordinators Jeff Scott and Tony Elliott. The first year coordinators led an offense that finished 16th in scoring offense (38.5 points per game) and 11th in total offense (514. 5 yards per game). Elliott and Scott each received $400,000 in their first year last season, but will get a raise to $625,000.

In total, the nine assistants will receive salaries that will total $5.3 million in 2016, up from $4.215 million last year.
