Six Georgia football assistant coaches get boost in annual pay including both coordinators


More than half of Kirby Smart’s Georgia football assistant coaches have received boosts in pay, led by offensive coordinator Mike Bobo who returned to that role last year.

Bobo’s pay is going from $1.02 million to $1.4 million, according to information obtained Friday by the Athens Banner-Herald in an open records request.

Bobo was one of five finalists last year for the Broyles Award as the nation’s top assistant after taking over for Todd Monken who left for the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens. His pay was due to rise to just over $1.1 million heading into the 2024 season, according to his contract.

The former Colorado State head coach and Auburn and South Carolina coordinator returned to his alma mater and was promoted from analyst before last season. Georgia’s offense ranked in the top 10 nationally in scoring (38.4), total offense (482.9) and passing (305.6).

Bobo is now the second highest-paid Georgia assistant coach. New co-defensive coordinator Travaris Robinson was hired from Alabama at an annual salary of $1.3 million.

Defensive coordinator Glenn Schumann also got a raise to bring his annual pay to $2 million from $1.902 million. Only Clemson offensive coordinator Garret Riley ($2.5 million) and Washington offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb (just over $2 million) were paid at least $2 million among assistants last season, according to USA Today.

Schumann held the title co-defensive coordinator along with Will Muschamp in the 2022 season, but that changed to defensive coordinator last offseason. Schumann has been with Smart as inside linebackers coach since his first season in 2016.
