As Mark Stoops finalizes his 2019 coaching staff, we now know the details of new deals for three UK offensive assistants. Records obtained by the Courier-Journal reveal a few significant raises.  Last week we learned Vince Marrow now holds the title "Associate Head Coach."  Along with that promotion is a substantial raise.  On track to make $475,000 in 2019, Marrow's new three-year deal comes with a $600,000 starting salary and increases by $25,000 each year. Offensive coordinator Eddie Gran will receive a similar deal after turning down an offer from Georgia's Kirby Smart.  The three-year extension begins with $875,000 (a $25K increase from his previous deal) in 2019 and increases by $25,000 each year. Wide receivers coach Michael Smith's first deal at UK was set to expire at the end of this season.  Instead, he'll get a $25,000 raise to $450,000 a year through 2020. All three contracts come with buyouts; Smith's is $100,000, while Gran and Marrow's is $150,000. We should learn more about Brad White and Jon Sumrall's promotions before Spring Practice begins March 4. [Courier-Journal] [mobile_ad]
