For coming to UCLA, offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch signed a two-year contract worth $810,000 a season, making him the second-highest paid assistant coach at a public Pac-12 school behind Oregon defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt.
Here’s how Fisch’s salary breaks down:
- $250,000 per year base salary
- $244,000 per year talent fee
- $150,000 one-time signing fee
- $156,000 retention bonus for first contract year (if Fisch remains with staff on Dec. 15, 2017)
- $306,000 total retention bonus for second contract year
- $150,000 if Fisch is still on the staff on June 15, 2018
- $156,000 is Fisch is still on staff on Dec. 15, 2018
- $10,000 for camps that Fisch works
Leavitt signed a four-year contract paying $1.15 million per year in December, according to the Oregonian. Last year, only 12 assistants in college football made more than $1 million.
Fisch’s contract eclipses that of offensive line coach Adrian Klemm, who was the highest paid assistant coach at a public Pac-12 school in 2016. Klemm made $760,000 last season.
According to M Live, Fisch was scheduled to make $750,000 at Michigan this year, where he would have been in his second year as the passing game coordinator and quarterbacks and wide receivers coach. He made $700,000 during his first year in Ann Arbor.
Fisch’s contract includes a unique clause that terminates employment in the event that head coach Jim Mora leaves or is fired. Unlike the contracts from other UCLA assistants, Fisch’s contract will end 30 days after the hiring of a new head coach. In the event of head coach departure, the other assistant coaches have contracts that continue until their respective ending dates.
