Stoops’ support staff increases

Contracts are out for the Cats’ final hires, announced last weekend. They include defensive backs coach Derrick Ansley, who will make $125,000 this season and double to $250,000 starting on July 1, 2014. Ansley’s deal runs through the summer of 2015.

Wide receivers coach Tommy Mainord’s deal also runs through June 30, 2015 and pays him $200,000 a year.

UK’s deal with special teams/safeties coach Bradley Dale Peveto will pay him $300,000 a season.

Just in assistant coach salaries and newly created support staff position salaries, UK is investing nearly $500,000 more a year in football.

That includes salary upgrades of $115,000 plus the new performance ($210,000) and recruiting ($135,000) coordinators

Recently, UK also has posted an assistant recruiting coordinator opening on its job website, so that support staff number is going to increase even more.
