#OKState offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich gets a $200K raise, will make $800,000 in 2018. He’s now the highest-paid assistant in OSU history.— Mark Cooper (@mark_cooperjr) June 25, 2018
Six years ago, he was making $52,500. https://t.co/JBgsax38gR
Yurcich’s new contract makes him the highest-paid assistant coach in Oklahoma State history. New defensive coordinator Jim Knowles will make $600,000 in his first year at Oklahoma State, compared to the $675,000 Glenn Spencer made annually before being relieved of his duties at Oklahoma State.
The pay raise will come with added pressure for Yurcich, who is no stranger to outside criticism from fans. However, it’s beyond clear that Gundy and Holder have his back. He’ll have his work cut out for him this season with a brand new quarterback, and a new offensive identity.
