UT regents are set to approve more than $4.3 million in annual salaries for seven position coaches and strength coach Yancy McKnight. Position coaches will also receive $10,000 annually for camps and clinics, in addition to one complimentary dealer vehicle per year.

Drew Mehringer - $340,000

While the majority of the deals extend through March 31, 2019, coordinators Todd Orlando and Tim Beck's proposed contract term ends March 31, 2020.

RB coach Stan Drayton is the only assistant with a guaranteed scheduled raise in his contract. Drayton's salary will increase to $515,000 annually on April 1, 2018 upon board approval.

The contract terms for Jason Washington and Corby Meekins are not listed on the meeting agenda, as only contracts exceeding $1 million require Board of Regents approval. In addition to their annual salaries, Washington and Meekins will also receive $10,000 annually for camps and clinics. 

HD confirmed the annual salaries for both coaches through open records in late February. At the time of the request, the duo's contracts were listed as pending. Requests for clarification of Washington and Meekins' contract terms and if the contracts have been signed were not immediately returned by Texas media relations.
