Every coach involved with Georgia Southern University’s 10-3 season in 2018 received sizable raises for 2019. The amount boosts their overall payroll from $1,855,000 to $2,133,000 for 2019. Salary numbers for Georgia Southern football head coach Chad Lunsford and every assistant on his staff were obtained by the Savannah Morning News through Georgia Open Records requests to Georgia Southern University. The pay raises differ by position and title with some positions receiving pay-percentage increases up to 40 percent. Newly hired wide receivers coach Lamar Owens will be paid $95,000 in year one under Lunsford. Combined, the nine returning on-field coaches received raises this spring amounting to $123,000bringing their combined base salary for the upcoming season to $1,258,000. Adding in Owens’ pay makes for an assistant coach (10 coaches) payroll of $1,353,000 in 2019. Lunsford’s offseason raise — from a $650,000 annual base salary in 2018 to $680,000 for 2019 — was generally expected after the immediate success. Last year, GS won over rivals Appalachian State and Georgia State in the same season for the first time since 2014. – Travis Jaudon, savannahnow – Read More
