New Huskies DC Wilcox to get $750,000 in 1st year



SEATTLE (AP) — New Washington defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox will make $750,000 in his first year in charge of the Huskies defense, part of a three-year deal Wilcox has agreed to after leaving Tennessee to come to Seattle.

Washington released salary information for its new assistant coaches Saturday.

Wilcox left Tennessee after two seasons. He was set to make $700,000 this year for the Volunteers, but instead will receive a significant raise with the Huskies. Wilcox will make $800,000 in 2013 and $850,000 in 2014.

New offensive coordinator Eric Kiesau will make $375,000 this season and see his base pay bump by $25,000 each of the next two years. Defensive line coach Tosh Lupoi will receive $350,000 in base pay for three years, a one-time $100,000 payment and an additional $100,000 if he stays all three years.
