Florida Football 2012: 5 Assistant Coaches Receive Contract Extensions

The Florida Gators gave contract extensions to five assistant football coaches on Monday, including defensive coordinator Dan Quinn.

Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn signed a one-year extension through the 2013 season. He did not receive a raise (he’ll make $510,000 this season) but he was paid an $80,000 signing bonus and also will receive an additional $80,000 retention bonus on or around Jan. 31, 2014, if he is still a member of the staff.

Linebackers coach and special teams coordinator D.J. Durkin got a two-year extension and a $75,000 raise that brings his annual salary to $340,000. Running backs coach Brian White got a one-year extension and a $50,000 raise that brings his annual salary up to $290,000.

Tight ends coach Derek Lewis and defensive backs coach Travaris Robinson received one-year extensions but no raises.
