Offensive coordinator Marcus Satterfield comes with the highest salary, as he’ll make $1.4 million on a three-year agreement that runs through the end of the 2025 football season. At South Carolina this past season, he made $900,000.

Defensive coordinator Tony White will make $1 million. While at Syracuse, his last listed salary was $711,420. The full terms of his contract were not released, but it’s assumed he’s also on a three-year contract like Satterfield. Rhule’s head coach’s contract states his coordinators can receive three-year contracts and his assistant coaches two year deals.

We do not know the contract terms for wide receivers coach Garrett McGuire, tight ends coach Bob Wager and linebackers coach Rob Dvoracek who were announced earlier this week.

Strength and conditioning coach Corey Campbell will make $450,000 in 2023. NU’s previous strength coach Zach Duval was paid $425,000 by NU. Offensive line coach Donovan Raiola’s salary did not change, as he’ll make $325,000 in 2023.
