Trickett, Graham, Brewster ink new contracts
Two new coaches have inked contracts while a staff veteran picked up an extension.
New Florida State assistants Jay Graham and Tim Brewster have been inked to two-year contracts which were made available to Warchant.com Tuesday via a public records request.
Offensive line coach Rick Trickett will make $455,000 annually with a three-year contract, which locks him up through the 2015 season. It's a bump up from his $400,00 per year salary in 2011 and 2012.
Graham, FSU's running backs coach who was hired away from Tennessee last month, will make $275,000 annually in a two-year contract.
Brewster, the new tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator, will make $290,000 per year. Brewster spent last season as the wide receivers coach at Mississippi State.
Graham and Brewster's compensation is in line with other assistants hired by FSU this offseason. Quarterbacks coach Randy Sanders and linebackers coach Charles Kelly will make will average $275,000 annually for the next two seasons. Sanders will make $225,000 in 2013 and $325,000 in 2014.
Both Graham and Brewster are also on the same bonus structure. Each will get a $5,000 bonus if FSU makes an appearance in the ACC Championship Game, one month's salary for making a non-BCS bowl game, 1 1/2 months salary for a BCS bowl berth and two months salary if FSU plays for a national championship.
Both also have the same buyout structure. Each would have to pay a $75,000 buyout during the first year of the contract and $50,000 during the second year of the deal.
All three deals were signed by FSU president Eric Barron on March 21.
