Washington’s nine assistant football coaches will receive a total of $3.51 million in total compensation during the 2016 season.
All but one of them received a two-year deal, through the 2017 season. The exception is offensive coordinator Jonathan Smith, whose contract was extended only through January 2017. His base salary of $440,000 will remain the same.
Defensive coordinator Pete Kwiatkowski and co-defensive coordinator (and defensive backs coach) Jimmy Lake each received substantial raises -- Kwiatkowski to $600,000 from $500,000, and Lake to $500,000 from $390,000. Tight ends coach Jordan Paopao ($210,000), running backs coach Keith Bhonapha ($280,000) and linebackers/special-teams coach Bob Gregory ($490,000) also received raises. Offensive line coach Chris Strausser’s base salary ($440,000) remains unchanged.
New receivers coach Bush Hamdan will earn an annual salary of $295,000, and new defensive line coach Ikaika Malloe will earn a base salary of $280,000.

All of the contracts still include standard incentives for APR and postseason achievement.
