In 2023, the University of Georgia will elevate Glenn Schumann to the ranks of the highest-paid coordinators in college football. The university recently disclosed documents indicating that Schumann’s salary will more than double, reaching an impressive $1.9 million per year.
Last year, Schumann signed a three-year contract extension that included a $200,000 increase after his promotion to lead defensive coordinator, a position he assumed following Dan Lanning’s move to Oregon. Schumann’s earnings for 2022 totaled $805,000, with scheduled increases to $855,000 in 2023 and $905,000 in 2024. Co-coordinator Will Muschamp, who also earned $805,000 in 2022, has not received a reported raise as of yet.
Schumann joined the Georgia staff in 2016, alongside head coach Kirby Smart. Initially taking on the role of inside linebackers coach, Schumann was promoted to co-defensive coordinator in 2019. Before his time in Athens, Schumann worked at the University of Alabama starting in 2008, beginning his tenure as an undergraduate assistant.
In related news, The Athletic has reported that Georgia’s new offensive coordinator, Mike Bobo, will receive a $1 million salary for 2023. Bobo previously signed a three-year deal as Auburn’s offensive coordinator, earning $1.3 million annually. He steps in to replace Todd Monken, who took home $2.005 million in 2022.
The upcoming season will be Bobo’s second stint as Georgia’s offensive coordinator. The former Bulldog quarterback previously held the position from 2007 to 2014, after working as Georgia’s quarterback’s coach from 2001 to 2006. Additionally, Bobo has served as the offensive coordinator for both South Carolina and Auburn.
According to information provided by the Athens Banner-Herald, all but two Georgia coaches will see an increase in pay for 2023 compared to the previous year.
