Seth Emerson of The Athletic broke the news a few hours ago that surprised absolutely no one. Kirby looked inside Butts-Mehre for his Defensive Coordinator and promoted Dan Lanning to DC along with giving Glenn Schumann the Co-DC title. Lanning got a substantial raise, doubling his salary to $750k while Schumann got a $225k bump to $550k

There were several other title & salary changes also included:
National Treasure Sam Pittman is now also Associate Head Coach $900k

Dell McGee is now also Running Game Coordinator $650k

Cortez Hankton is now Passing Game Coordinator $550k

Rounding out the staff salaries/raises are:

James Cooley, Offensive Coordinator $950k

Charlton Warren, Defensive Backs Coach $600k

Tray Scott, Defensive Line Coach $470k

Todd Hartley, Tight Ends Coach $300k

Scott Fountain, Special Teams Coordinator $325k

All together, the total salaries decreased $375k from last year due to the departure of Mel Tucker and Jim Chaney. It looks like Kirby took the savings from the departures and paid the people he needed to pay (Sam Pittman especially in this writers opinion.)

That’s your Off-Season Friday Night News for now....Y’all stay warm and...........
