Raises to assistants is a big deal

We’re recruiting kids (and coaches) and look to be treating them well.

Good model for a solid foundation.

    Got to love the job our coaches have done on the field and in recruiting, their raises were well deserved. Hope the raises help us keep them.

    Can't hurt. Many that are candidates for a bigger job will now have much limited options to get both a promotion and raise. Likely have to get promoted to a level up at a P5 school whereas before CMT for instance could go to HC at a G5 school for similar or more money; not many G5 schools will significantly beat $1.5m plus bonuses.

    I thought about this when Beamer left

    Good point. These raises are in line with what other contending P5 schools are paying to assistants, and they ain't paying them purely out of generosity.

    Coaches are vastly overpaid and if they feel unmotivated to do their jobs at 700K a year, they're not going to be motivated by more money.
    This is purely about being competitive in salaries, market forces dictate what we have to pay to retain and attract the top coaches.

    That is true for a short while, but coaches salaries are increasing every season now, we'll end up revisiting our scale in the near future.

    You miss the point entirely. What if some company offered you a 50% payraise to do the same job. Would you go? What if a company tripled your salary and offered you a higher position than your current job? Would yo go? It’s not about motivation to do a good job, it’s about working your way up. It’s also about teams recruiting the best coaches. Yes, coaches get recruited. Offering a coach more money than their current salary is a common tool in the hiring process.

    Glad to see the raises. Hopefully our top guys will see the value in staying around long enough to put two or three NC rings on their fingers and on their resumes. It didn't hurt Kirby...and I am looking forward to seeing him get a nice bump. It is not acceptable for Kirby to be paid less than the HC's at TN, AU, or UF etc.

    Keep those assistant coaches happy and around for a long time Kirby! They have helped make UGA into a national powerhouse! I’m always excited for UGA football but winning sure does make things a lot more fun! Go Dawgs!

    No I didn't miss anything, you seem to have only read the first paragraph of my post.

    It pays to stay ahead of the curve. Especially if we are headed where many of us see UGA football is headed to.......

    Not trying to pick a fight but your post contradicted itself. You imply coaches are unmmotivated because they are always looking for a bigger paycheck, but acknowledge we need to be competitive in paying these guys. Money is a HUGE motivator. To many it's the prime motivator. I agree coaches are overpaid, but that's what the market demands. Coaches are not unmotivated, they just expect to be reimbursed fairly compared to the market.

    I think it definetly showed that Kirby knows how to assemble a successful staff and rewarding them for a job well done was in order. What was in 3 assistants in the top 30 in recruiting?

  • BigcalidawgBigcalidawg Posts: 862 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    We know that attrition comes with success, so to maintain a nucleus of coaches, even for 4 years, is a big deal.
