More Football Salaries Set


FAYETTEVILLE — Salary figures for a few more members of Arkansas' football staff were made available this afternoon.

Here's a rundown of those numbers:

• LB coach Randy Shannon - $315,000 annually through June 30, 2014 - $50,000 prorated buyout (waived if he accepts a head coach/d-coordinator job)

• WR coach George McDonald - $275,000 annually through June 30, 2014 - $50,000 prorated buyout

• CB coach Taver Johnson - $250,000 annually through June 30, 2014 - $50,000 prorated buyout

• RB coach Joel Thomas - $235,000 annually through June 30, 2014 - $50,000 prorated buyout

• Strength coach Ben Herbert - $300,000 annually through June 30, 2016 - $50,000 prorated buyout

The salary totals for on-the-field staff has now risen to $2.8 million with one more position coach to be hired. Arkansas' salary total for its nine assistants last year was just over $2.6 million, so it's obvious the Razorbacks have followed through with their plan to increase the pay for assistant coaches.
