Auburn to pay Muschamp $5.1 million over 3 years

AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn defensive coordinator Will Muschamp will make at least $5.1 million over three years.

The university released the contract Wednesday. The former Florida head coach will make $1.6 million in the 2015 season and receive $100,000 raises in each of the next two years plus unspecified bonuses.

Florida also owes Muschamp $6.3 million over three years. That raises his total pay to $3.9 million a year.

Auburn coach Gus Malzahn calls Muschamp "the best defensive mind in all of football, not just college football."

If Auburn fires him without cause before Dec. 31, 2017, the school would owe Muschamp the balance of his contract. He'd have to pay $1 million if he leaves before the end of this season or the SEC championship game.
