GAINESVILLE (AP) - Florida is spending more on assistant coaches than it is on first-year head coach Will Muschamp.

The Gators have committed $2.93 million to Muschamp's nine-man coaching staff in 2011, about $300,000 more than last year, according to contracts released Friday.

Offensive coordinator Charlie Weis signed a three-year deal worth $2.495 million. He will earn $765,000 in 2011, then $865,000 the next two years. Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn signed a two-year deal worth $1 million. He will get $490,000 in 2011, then $510,000 the following year.

Muschamp agreed to a five-year deal worth $13.5 million, or $2.7 million annually. He assembled a staff with lots of NFL experience. He also paid them accordingly.

The Gators actually are saving money since former coach Urban Meyer made $4 million annually.
