Eight Tennessee football assistant coaches decline to take pay cuts
.

Eight Tennessee football assistant coaches have declined proposed pay cuts as the athletic department deals with a $40 million loss in revenue during the coronavirus pandemic.

Tennessee announced pay cuts in October starting Nov. 1 through June 30 for employees making more than $50,000 per year. But Tennessee football coaches must agree to any reductions as part of their contracts.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reported Friday that every head coach at Tennessee signed a contract amendment agreeing to reduce pay through June 30.

But athletic department spokesman Tom Satkowiak confirmed Friday that eight assistants did not. They were offensive coordinator Jim Chaney, the highest paid of the eight at $1.6 million per year; defensive coordinator Derrick Ansley; offensive line coach Will Friend; quarterbacks coach Chris Weinke; inside linebackers coach Brian Niedermeyer; outside linebackers coach Shelton Felton; tight ends coach Joe Osovet; and strength and conditioning coach A.J. Artis, the lowest-paid assistant at $200,000 per year.

The only football assistants to accept pay cuts were wide receivers coach Tee Martin and running backs coach Jay Graham, who both played at Tennessee.

Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt was not asked to take a pay cut because he did not accept a raise for 2020 in a contract extension signed in September. Athletic director Phillip Fulmer announced in August that he would take a 15% pay cut that started Nov. 1.

Many are hired guns who could be kicked to the curb next year, so I don’t blame them.

I thought Pruitt just deferred his raise for a year not gave it up.

Funny that refusing a raise by the HC during the pandemic, is equated to a pay CUT to assistants. What the heck were they doing offering Bubba a raise in September anyway, with a budget crisis looming?
Sounds like UTK's staff will be looking at a bit of an overhaul during the offseason, lol. Those AC contracts are typically 1-year deals, and they will have some tough negotiations if they want to stay.

I don't think many want to stay I mean he fired a guy in the 2nd quarter of a game for disagreeing with him.

recently their athletic department was in debt to the tune of $200 million?
Dunno what shape they are in now though.

It is strange that Neidermeyer went from cadet commander of the reserve officer training program at Faber college to coaching linebackers at UT.

So he survived being shot by his own troops in Nam?



Think about it, Faber and UT are both in college towns in Tennessee.
