Here Are The Contract Details For Michigan's 3 $1 Million Coordinators

Michigan football is really taking care of its assistant coaches. Three of Jim Harbaugh's top lieutenants are each pulling in at least $1 million this season.

Detroit News' Angelique S. Chengelis obtained the contract offers for defensive coordinator Don Brown, offensive coordinator Tim Drevno, and new passing game coordinator Pep Hamilton, each of whom will be pulling in seven digits this fall.

Here is what each contract looks like:

Brown and Drevno, who were both with the program last season, have been extended through the end of the 2021-22 season, while Hamilton's new deal lasts through 2020-21. Hamilton is a new hire for Harbaugh's Wolverines, coming from the NFL's Cleveland Browns. He previously served under Harbaugh as wide receivers coach at Stanford in 2010, and was promoted to offensive coordinator when Harbaugh jumped to the NFL, and David Shaw was promoted to replace him.

Assistant coach salaries is one place where programs like Alabama have been ahead of the game in college football. Michigan is clearly bridging that gap in a big way, and will be an enticing destination for top assistants going forward.
