Compensation and contract changes for LSU assistant football coaches Mickey Joseph and Tommy Moffitt were passed by the LSU Board of Supervisors athletic committee during their Friday meeting.
Joseph's 33 percent raise and two-year extension through 2021 was approved by the board, and Moffitt's contract had a scheduled pay bump of $15,000 that did not need board approval.
Moffitt's contract ended up on the agenda accidentally, and the item was briefly dismissed at the beginning of the athletic committee meeting.
Joseph, 51, joined LSU's coaching staff as a wide receivers coach in 2017, signing a two-year, $235,000 per year contract that was set to expire March 31, 2019.
Since that date had expired, Joseph's contract was due to be automatically renewed for an additional year unless it was terminated.
LSU athletic director Scott Woodward and deputy athletic director Verge Ausberry both attended the meeting, back from Southeastern Conference spring meetings in Destin, Florida.
Ausberry presented Joseph's contract before the board.
"Coach (Ed Orgeron) is very high on this young man," Ausberry said. "He's one of our best coaches on the field. He's one of the best recruiters."
Joseph's contract amendment has bumped him to an annual salary of $310,000 per year through March 31, 2021, and it would include supplemental bonus payments of up to $75,000.
- SEC title game appearance: $10,000
- SEC champions: $15,000
And the highest of the following:
- Bowl game appearance: $10,000
- College Football Playoff bowl appearance: $25,000
- CFP semifinal appearance: $35,000
- CFP national championship appearance: $45,000
- CFP national champion: $60,000
Moffitt is entering his 20th season as LSU's strength and conditioning coach, and his contract, which expires March 31, 2020, is due to move up from $415,000 to $430,000 per year for this upcoming season.
Joseph and Moffitt are the third and fourth LSU football coaches to receive compensation changes this offseason.
LSU head coach Ed Orgeron received a two-year contract extension and raise to $4 million per year.
Safeties coach Bill Busch received a $50,000 raise and a one-year extension to his contract.
