TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida State defensive coordinator Charles Kelly has received a raise to go along with his promotion.
Kelly's salary has increased to $500,000 and he received an extension through the 2017 season. He was promoted from linebackers coach during the offseason after Jeremy Pruitt left to take the defensive coordinator position at Georgia. Kelly made $275,000 last season before bonuses.
Seven of nine Florida State assistants reached new deals that run from 2014-2017. Kelly, assistant head coach/offensive line coach Rick Trickett and co-offensive coordinator Randy Sanders are the three highest paid assistants at $500,000 each. New linebackers coach Bill Miller is signed from 2014-2016 and defensive ends coach Sal Sunseri is in the final year of a one-year deal.
Florida State is now paying its assistants a combined $3.375 million.
