Regents Approves Contracts For UT Football Assistants

Updated: Thursday, February 6 2014, 10:52 AM CST

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- The University of Texas Board of Regents has approved contracts for new football coach Charlie Strong's assistants.
 
Texas is giving each of the 10 assistants a three-year contract. That's a change at a school that typically puts them on a year-to-year basis.
 
Defensive coordinator Vance Bedford will get the largest salary at a base of $760,000. Quarterbacks coach and assistant head coach Shawn Watson will make $610,000. Bedford and Watson came with Strong from Louisville.
 
Offensive coordinator Joe Wickline, who Strong hired from Oklahoma State, will be paid $535,000.
 
Although the staff has been on the job for weeks, their salaries and contracts had to be approved by the board. The board approved the contracts with a unanimous vote Thursday.

Head coach Charlie Strong makes $5 million a year.
