ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — LSU's Dave Aranda and Matt Canada, at a combined $3.3 million this year, are believed to be the highest-paid coordinator duo in college football.

Now there's a trio of assistants in Michigan topping a million each.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh's defensive coordinator Don Brown and offensive coordinator Tim Drevno have been retained with contracts worth more than $10 million combined over the next five years. Passing coordinator Pep Hamilton was lured away from the Cleveland Browns with a $4.25 million, four-year deal.

Terms of their deals were obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press with a Freedom of Information Act request.

Brown's contract calls for him to make $1 million annually in the first four years and $1.4 million in 2021.Drevno's deal is worth $1 million each year. Hamilton's salary will be $1 million in the first three years of his deal before getting a bump to $1.25 million in 2020.

LSU offensive coordinator Matt Canada is set to make $1.5 million per year as part of a three-year contract that he and the school agreed upon, according to documents obtained by The Advocate.

Aranda signed a new three-year contract in December paying him $1.8 million per year this season. He's expected to be the highest-paid assistant in the country.

Canada's salary would have made him the second-highest paid assistant last year behind Texas A&M defensive coordinator John Chavis, according to numbers compiled by USA Today.
