Georgia football boosts assistant coach’s pay for second time this offseason


Georgia football defensive line coach Tray Scott’s pay has gone up for the second time this offseason.

Scott received a $45,000 pay increase that took effect Feb. 27 and another for $200,000 that kicked in on April 1 that brings his compensation to $1 million annually, according to information obtained Thursday by the Athens Banner-Herald in an open records request.

That’s the same pay as offensive coordinator Mike Bobo, which trails only the $1.9 million for defensive coordinator Glenn Schumann. Bobo also is to receive a $300,000 annual buyout from Auburn this year.
