Clemson assistants Tony Elliott, Jeff Scott get raises to $1 million

ESPN

Clemson's second College Football Playoff national championship in three seasons is paying big dividends for the Tigers' coaching staff, especially co-offensive coordinators Tony Elliott and Jeff Scott.

The Clemson board of trustees on Friday approved $150,000 raises for Elliott and Scott, who will now make $1 million annually.

The university is expected to wait until later this year to increase head coach Dabo Swinney's annual compensation of $6 million.

Tigers defensive coordinator Brent Venables was the second-highest-paid assistant in the Football Bowl Subdivision this past season with a $2.2 million salary, according to a database compiled by USA Today, giving the Tigers three assistants making more than $1 million.

LSU defensive coordinator Dave Aranda was the sport's highest-paid coordinator at $2.5 million.
