Curry's Georgia State salary: $350K per year
Georgia State has offered new football coach Bill Curry an annual salary of $350,000, according to documents obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution through the Freedom of Information Act.
This is not a contract but a memorandum of understanding. Curry has three months to sign the document. When Georgia State introduced him as head coach last week, Curry had agreed to a five-year contract.
In addition to his salary, he will receive an annual $50,000 bonus that’s tied to certain athletic and academic achievements that will be included in the contract. He will also receive a $500 month car allowance. He will have a pool of $450,000 with which to hire six assistant coaches, a director of football operations and an administrative assistant.
Curry, 65, will begin the job officially on July 1.
According to the memorandum, Georgia State will allow Curry to attend six speaking engagements in 2008 as well as his three-week book tour in August to promote his soon-to-be published book, Ten Men You Meet in the Huddle: Lessons from a Football Life, as long as these engagements do not diminish his job performance.
