Florida’s offense has ranked 12th and last in the SEC in coordinator Doug Nussmeier’s two seasons, but he received a raise and a two-year extension this offseason.

In response to a public records request from GatorBait.net, Florida released its coaching contracts.

Nussmeier’s base pay will be close to $850,000 this season; it was $525,000 last season. One reason it was so low last season and in 2015, though, was that Nussmeier still was getting paid by Michigan, his previous employer.

Florida averaged 334.0 yards (12th in the league) and 23.2 points per game (11th) in 2015; last season, the Gators averaged 344.0 yards (last) and 23.9 points (12th).

Nussmeier will be No. 2 on the salary list for UF assistants, as newly promoted defensive coordinator Randy Shannon will make $900,000 this season; Shannon made $500,000 in 2016, when he was the linebacker coach.

Defensive line coach Chris Rumph is the only other assistant who will make more than $500,000. His 2017 salary is $600,000, a raise of $100,000 from 2016.

Every Florida assistant will make at least $300,000.

Florida coach Jim McElwain is scheduled to make $4.3 million this season.
