ANN ARBOR, Mich. — The Michigan football program has renewed the contracts of two of its assistant coaches.
Michigan defensive line coach Greg Mattison agreed to a two-year contract worth $525,000 annually, while running backs coach Jay Harbaugh agreed to a one-year deal worth $225,000.
Land of 10 obtained memorandums of understanding for the two contracts through a Freedom of Information Act request.
Mattison and Harbaugh each receive $25,000 raises. Mattison’s original contract was worth $500,000 annually, while the second year of Harbaugh’s original two-year contract was worth $200,000.
Mattison’s contract was set to expire on Jan. 10, while Harbaugh’s contract was set to expire five days after Michigan’s last game in the 2016 season.
Mattison is in his seventh year on Michigan’s football staff. He spent four seasons with Brady Hoke’s staff as defensive coordinator, then joined Jim Harbaugh’s staff at Michigan in January 2015 as defensive line coach.
Mattison’s current contract terms began Jan. 11 this year and continue through Jan. 10, 2019.
