Most of USC's assistant football coaches got a raise for the next season.
The group of nine coaches will earn $195,000 more in 2011, up 9 percent from what assistants received for last year's SEC East-winning season. They will earn $2.345 million this year.
Seven coaches will have higher paychecks this season.
The pay for Ellis Johnson, assistant head coach for defense, did not change from $700,000. And the Gamecocks added John Butler to handle special teams this year.
The pay hikes come after the USC Board of Trustees on Friday raised head coach Steve Spurrier's pay over the next three seasons to an average of $2.8 million a year, up from $1.75 million in 2010.
The coach also will get a one-time $1 million deferred payment at the end of the year that was part of a previous contract extension.
