Florida has extended the contracts of five assistant coaches and given them all raises.

Offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier, whose contract ran through this season, was extended through the 2018 season and his salary was bumped from $550,000 a year to $832,725.

Defensive line coach Chris Rumph's contract was extended through the 2019 season and he was given a $100,000 raise, from $490,000 to $590,000.

The contracts of linebackers coach Tim Skipper, wide receivers coach Kerry Dixon and tight ends coach Greg Nord were extended through the 2018 season.

Skipper's salary goes from $440,000 to 446,000, Dixon's from $275,000 to $290,000 and Nord's from $390,00 to $410,000.

UF made the information available through a public records request.

Last month, UF released contract information for defensive coordinator Randy Shannon, who received a significant raise for his promotion from linebacker coach.

Shannon will make $890,000 in base salary as UF's defensive coordinator this upcoming season, a $400,000 boost from a year ago.

Shannon's contract was one of four assistant coaching deals released last month by the school through a public records request. New running backs coach JaJuan Seider will make $335,000 in 2017-18, while new defensive backs coach Corey Bell and new offensive line coach Brad Davis will each make $290,000.
