Florida Gators athletic director Scott Stricklin received a raise of almost $600,000 and a three-year extension that runs through October 2027.
Under the new deal — finalized in July and released Monday by the Gators —Stricklin’s base pay jumped from $545,900 annually to $1 million. His compensation for media-related responsibilities rose from $150,000 to $270,000.
Stricklin, 51, also receives other benefits (like automobile, tickets and travel) worth about $62,000.
No other term of Stricklin’s deal changed. He is scheduled to receive $250,000 retention bonuses in 2025, ‘26 and ‘27.
Stricklin joined the Gators in 2016 from Mississippi State. He hired (and subsequently fired) football coach Dan Mullen and hired Billy Napier from Louisiana. He has also seen a wave of facilities upgrades, including the $85 million football operations center that is set to open next year and the new baseball stadium.
Stricklin’s deal was set to expire in 2024.
