Head coaches in nine of Oklahoma’s 18 sports, along with seven of the nine football assistant coaches, received raises at the Board of Regents meeting Tuesday in Ardmore.
The only football assistants who did not receive a raise were defensive coordinator Mike Stoops and linebackers coach Tim Kish. Stoops just signed a three-year deal in January that will pay him $600,000 a season. Linebackers coach Tim Kish agreed to a $269,000 deal in March.
Co-offensive coordinators Josh Heupel and Jay Norvell both received $20,000 raises and will make $350,000 this season. The remaining assistants — running backs coach Cale Gundy, offensive line coach James Patton, defensive tackles coach Jackie Shipp and defensive ends coach Bobby Jack Wright — will all make between $252,000 to $280,000 this season.
The biggest percentage for any of the head coaches went women’s gymnastics coach K.J. Kindler. She received a $60,000 raise to $190,000 per season. Kindler also agreed to a “stay bonus” of $100,000 that will be payable on July 1, 2017, if she is still the head coach.
Women’s basketball head coach Sherri Coale received a one-year extension to her contract and will receive a guaranteed raise of $30,000 per year in the final five years of the deal, which expires in June 2018.
Coale is scheduled to make $1.01 million this season. Her assistants — Jan Ross, Chad Thraikill and Pam DeCosta — also received raises.
Softball coach Patty Gasso, who led the Sooners to the Women’s College World Series championship series earlier this month, received a $10,000-a-year raise to $205,000 per season. Her five-year contract also guarantees a raise of $5,000 each season. Softball assistant coaches Melyssa Lombardi and Tripp Mackay also received raises.
Baseball coach Sunny Golloway was given a $5,000 -per-year raise to $356,000 per season. Pitching coach Jack Giese also was given a $15,000 raise to $130,000.
Men’s basketball assistants Steve Henson, Lew Hill and Chris Crutchfield all received salary bumps and all three will make $205,250 this season.
Volleyball coach Santiago Restrepo, men’s tennis coach John Roddick, rowing coach LeeAnn Crain, men’s golf coach Ryan Hybl, women’s golf coach Veronique Drouin-Luttrell and women’s tennis coach David Mullins also received raises.
