Several Crimson Tide assistant coaches received raises Tuesday, according Alabama’s Rivals’ site. Alabama’s defensive coordinator Kirby Smart received a $200,000 raise, bumping him from $1.3 million to $1.5 million. He is the highest paid assistant coach at Alabama, but the third-highest paid defensive coordinator in the Southeastern Conference. Auburn’s Will Muschamp ($1.6 million) and Texas A&M’s John Chavis ($1.67 million) are ahead of Smart.
Alabama’s offensive coach Mario Cristobal was extended from $500,000 to $515,000.
