The Clemson board of trustees approved $150,000 raises on Friday for co-offensive coordinators Tony Elliott and Jeff Scott, bringing each assistant's salary to $1 million annually.
That gives the Tigers three assistant coaches who make at least $1 million annually, along with defensive coordinator Brett Venables. His $2.2 million salary was the second-highest in FBS in 2018, according to USA Today's salary database, trailing only LSU D-coordinator Dave Aranda ($2.5 million).
Much of the rest of the Tigers' staff will also receive raises after Clemson won its second national title in three seasons with a dominant 44-16 win over Alabama, capping a 15-0 season.
Head coach Dabo Swinney's salary is expected to remain at $6 million for now, before a likely raise later in 2019.
Elliott has been on Clemson's staff since 2011, coaching running backs, and began his current position in 2015.
Scott joined the Tigers in 2008 to coach wide receivers and also was promoted to his current position in 2015.
Per USA Today's database, 21 assistants made at least $1 million in 2018, and only one school (Ohio State) had more than two of them on its staff.
