TAMPA - New University of South Florida offensive coordinator Greg Gregory received the largest raise among the Bulls' assistants for the 2007-08 school year, while new men's basketball coach Stan Heath's three assistants will each make more than USF's highest-paid men's basketball assistant last season.

Gregory, who was promoted from tight ends coach in January, will make $120,000 this year, an increase of $35,000 from last season. Safeties coach Troy Douglas, who turned down offers from Minnesota and Middle Tennessee to remain at USF, received a $20,000 increase to $95,000, while defensive coordinator Wally Burnham's salary increased $19,000 to $165,000.

The salary information was provided by USF through a Tampa Tribune public records request. The new salaries went into effect Sunday, the start of the school's 2007-08 fiscal year.

Burnham is USF's highest-paid assistant, followed by new defensive line coach Dan McCarney ($140,000), who joined USF in February after 12 seasons as Iowa State's coach. Gregory and running backs coach Carl Franks, who received a $14,000 raise, are next at $120,000 each.

The remainder of USF's football staff salaries: new receivers coach Mike Canales ($100,000), cornerbacks coach Rich Rachel ($95,000; a $10,000 raise from last season), new offensive line coach Mike Simmonds ($65,000) and new tight ends coach Larry Scott ($50,000).

As required by Coach Jim Leavitt's contract, USF's assistants' pool increased $100,000 from last season to $950,000. The individual salaries are determined by Leavitt, who receives $1 million a year, not including incentives.

Despite the increases, USF's assistants' salaries still rank among the nation's lowest among Bowl Championship Series schools.

Heath, who was hired at USF in April after five seasons at Arkansas, had $375,000 to divide among his staff. Top assistant Dan Hipsher will receive $125,000, with Reggie Hanson and Byron Samuels each receiving $100,000. Darren Sorenson, USF's director of basketball operations, will receive $50,000.

Heath will earn $675,000, not including incentives, in his debut season at USF.


GO Bulls..  Hope to see you at our tailgate next season.
