The University of Wisconsin Board of Regents on Friday approved the contracts for football coach Gary Andersen and his two coordinators.
As previously reported, Andersen has a five-year deal that will pay him $1.8 million his first year (with a $400,000 base) and go up $100,000 the next four years. That means he will be paid $2.2 million in his fifth year.
Offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig and defensive coordinator Dave Aranda will both get two-year contracts at $480,000 per year, which includes base salaries of $300,000.
All of the contracts still have to be signed, according to a UW spokesman.
Defensive coordinator Chris Ash and offensive coordinator Matt Canada both were scheduled to make $265,000 last season for the Badgers.
The total compensation for the nine on-field assistants last season was $1.973 million.
UW athletic director Barry Alvarez said he is giving a pool of $2.5 million this season to Andersen to split up as he sees fit among the nine assistants.
