Michigan rounded out its coaching staff by bringing Greg Frey back to Ann Arbor last month.
Frey, who came from Indiana’s staff, was hired as the Wolverines’ tight ends/tackles coach and run game coordinator. It was an easy decision for Frey, who said it took him all of 18 seconds to decide. He’ll be getting a nice bump of pay with his new gig.
Frey signed a three-year contract worth a base of $500,000 per year, documents obtained by Land of 10 show. The contract went into effect on Jan. 19 and runs out on Jan. 11, 2020.
Per FOIA request, Michigan assistant Greg Frey will earn a base salary of $500,000 a year on a three-year contract through Jan. 11, 2020.

Frey coached at Michigan from 2008-2010 before joining the Indiana staff.
He made $376,000 last season as Indiana’s offensive line coach/co-offensive coordinator, according to USA Today. Frey was the 201st highest-paid assistant in college football last season. His new salary would have ranked in the top 100 during the 2016 campaign.
Frey is joining a Michigan staff which features three assistants who will make at least $1 million in 2017: Offensive coordinator Tim Drevno, defensive coordinator Don Brown and new assistant head coach Pep Hamilton.
