Football assistant paper

USA Today just came out with its annual listing of college football assistant coach salaries. My numbers differ a little from the national newspaper.

Offensive line/run game coordinator coach Steve Shankweiler $136,000 (Shankweiler going for the head coaching job at Elon is no surprise. He's a state of North Carolina guy -- graduated from Davidson, coached at East Carolina three times for a total of 15 years. Especially at his age, better to be the head coach of an FCS school in a region where you feel comfortable than an assistant in an area that takes some acclimation time). 

Special teams coach Kevin Wolthausen $115,000

Assistant head coach defensive line Andre Patterson $110,000

Wide receivers coach Cam Turner $105,000

Defensive coordinator Josh Conklin $100,000

Linebackers coach Tom Williams $100,000

Running backs Andrew Hayes-Stoker $99,000

Secondary Jason Brooks $92,000

Tight ends/offensive tackles Kort Shankweiler $92,000

Just for comparison sake, here's the base salaries of the 2012 FIU staff

Offensive coordinator/quarterbacks Tim Cramsey $150,00

Defensive coordinator/linebackers Todd Orlando $137,100

Assistant head coach offensive line Alex Mirabal $100,000

Secondary coach Jeff Popovich $100,000

Wide receivers coach Frank Ponce $100,000
