New LSU passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach Cortez Hankton will receive a three-year contract at LSU worth an average of $900,000 per year, according to his term sheet.

Hankton, a native of New Orleans, La., joined LSU's staff this week. He was previously the passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach at Georgia where he made $550,000 in 2021, according to reports.

So essentially we have several position coaches that would only leave for head coaching or huge money coordinator jobs. My only guess is that they are trying to keep this coaching staff intact for years, by paying them obscene amounts of money. Not even the NFL are poaching these cats unless it's for a coordinator job

I'd be surprised if NFL WR coaches make this much money.

How do you think you get quality people to start with? You pay them well. If you are a business and you want that bad arse salesgirl who works at your rival, guess what, pay them more and get her.

This is an incredible amount of money to pay a person for anything other than the highest position in an organization. Professional and collegiate athletics are so out of touch with these pay scales that it is almost obscene.

If LSU wins, no one gives a damn about salaries. If LSU doesn’t win, it will matter.

People like to think Saban sets the coaching salary market, no, LSU paying every coach 50-100% more than their previous salary for the last 5+ years has. LSU: Always bidding against itself

Looks like Kelly and Administration doesn’t want to play “let’s find a new staff” every off season like they did with Coach O. Pay the men you want and keep them around if you like their results. If you don’t pay them, someone else will. Get your staff and build a program.
