Newly hired LSU running back coach and recruiting coordinator Tommie Robinson will make $575,000 in the first year of a three-year contract, according to The Advocate.

Robinson, who also holds the title of assistant head coach, will make $600,000 in 2018 and 2019. LSU paid $237,500 in buyout payments to USC, according to the report.

New wide receiver coach Mickey Joseph will receive a two-year deal worth $225,000 a year.

The Advocate obtained a memorandum of agreement Robinson signed this week, detailing his future contract with the program. He reportedly made $450,000 last year at USC. The school rehired general manager Austin Thomas last spring, pulling him away from USC by giving him a $25,000 raise from his previous salary with the Tigers, according to a copy of Thomas' contract.

Mickey Joseph, the former Louisiana Tech running backs coach the Tigers hired this week, will make $225,000 a year as part of a two-year contract, according to the memorandum he signed.
