It wasn’t a million-dollar season. Not quite.
But for the University of Florida‘s Jim McElwain, the first season with the Gators was profitable nevertheless.
Florida has announced that it has given McElwain a $750,000 raise, bringing his total compensation to $4.25 million. That puts McElwain fifth in the SEC in compensation, just behind LSU’s Les Miles, who earns $4.3 million season. Nick Saban is first in the league at $6.9 million.
The Gators won 10 games last season after totaling 11 in the last two years of Will Muschamp’s tenure.
