South Carolina’s Board of Trustees just approved new contracts for head football coach Will Muschamp and his assistants along with strength and conditioning coach Jeff Dillman.

After taking over the program off of a 3-9 season in 2015, Muschamp and his staff improved the team’s record to six wins in his first season and then nine this year, which included a 26-19 win over Michigan in the Outback Bowl.

Muschamp, who was down to three years on his original contract signed December 6, 2015, has been extended for three years through 2023.

Muschamp also received a salary increase and will now make $4.2 million next season, with a salary increase of $200,000 per year. If he were to buyout in the first year of his contract, he would owe USC $4 million. 

Each of the assistant coaches, plus Dillman, received a raise and contract extension as well, with a salary pool of $5.1 million. Those numbers can be seen below.

Muschamp will hold a press conference at noon on Friday.
