Kurt Roper salary: New Florida OC to make $600K annually, per report

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The number puts him in line with Brent Pease, and a little behind Charlie Weis.

New Florida offensive coordinator Kurt Roper will make $600,000 for a year's work, according to Robbie Andreu of The Gainesville Sun.

It's not clear how long Roper's contract guarantees him that salary — Florida hasn't yet released the terms of Roper's employment, though we'll have them for you as soon as the school does — but it's a good bet it's for two or three years.

Roper's recent predecessors, Charlie Weis and Brent Pease, each signed three-year deals. Weis's salary was $765,000 in 2011, and he had a three-year deal worth $2.6 million. Pease was paid a $490,000 base salary in 2012, but made $600,000 including bonuses — likely factored into the number Andreu is reporting — and signed a three-year, $1.8 million contract. Pease was then given a raise in early 2013 — one I defended as deserved — that made his annual salary $590,000.

Obviously, Florida is paying Roper well, and would like to get a little more out of Roper's offense than it did from coordinators it paid at similar rates, but it seems likely the Gators did not exactly break the bank to pry him away from Duke.
