USF football assistants get pay increases

TAMPA — USF football coach Jim Leavitt's seven assistants who returned from last season all got raises of at least 25 percent, according to salary figures released by the school Sunday.

Defensive coordinator Wally Burnham remains USF's highest-paid assistant, earning $220,000 this season. The biggest raises went to the assistants who had been the lowest-paid on the staff. Tight ends coach Larry Scott earned an 80 percent raise to $90,000, and offensive line coach Mike Simmonds jumped 54 percent to $100,000.

Scott and first-year defensive ends coach Kevin Patrick are the only full-time assistants on Leavitt's staff not making $100,000 or more.

All three of men's basketball coach Stan Heath's assistants also make six figures, but two — Reggie Hanson and Byron Samuels — received no raise.

Football: Louisville receiver JaJuan Spillman was dismissed from the team after his second arrest in 18 months.

Information from the Associated Press was used in this report.
