Salary info for new LSU offensive coordinators Jake Peetz and DJ Mangas

Yesterday, LSU announced the additions of offensive coordinator / quarterbacks coach Jake Peetz and passing game coordinator DJ Mangas.

Both guys arrive in Baton Rouge with impressive resumes after coaching together under Matt Rhule and Joe Brady in Carolina last season, and impressed Oregeron in their interviews, but this will mark the first time holding a coordinator title for them both.

Brody Miller shared some of the contract details for each of the new Tigers coordinators today.

Offensive coordinator Jake Peetz has a two-year deal worth $1.2 million the first year, and $1.3 million the second year, plus a $150k signing bonus and incentives, Miller shares.

That figure puts Peetz in the same salary range as fellow college football coordinators Kevin Wilson (OC - Ohio State), Pete Golding (DC - Alabama), Dan Lanning (DC - Georgia), and Kerry Coombs (DC - Ohio State). His salary for 2021 would put him among the top 20 highest paid coordinators in college football.

Among the incentives outlined in the deal for Peetz, which are maxed out at $75k, are; $10k for an SEC Championship Game appearance, $10k for a non-CFP Bowl game, $25k for a CFP Bowl game that is not the semis or national title, $35k for a semifinal appearance, $45k for a national title appearance, and $60k for a CFP national title.

Mangas, who was on LSU's staff as an offensive analyst and sat next to former offensive coordinator Joe Brady in the box during their national title run, will make $400k annually, plus incentives, as part of a two-year deal.

As Panthers offensive coordinator Joe Brady continues to interview for head coaching opportunities, it's worth noting that

As Joe Brady continues to interview for NFL head coaching jobs, here's a clause to keep in mind within the term sheets of Jake Peetz and DJ Mangas:

Both can terminate their contacts with #LSU without damages if they accept any position in the NFL (this is a standard clause).
