Florida gives McElwain a raise

College Football Odds 3/27/16 – Florida gives Jim McElwain a raise

The Florida Gators are happy with the job Jim McElwain is doing for the team and they elected to give him a raise earlier in the week.

The program announced on Friday that they are giving the second-year coach a $750,000 per-year raise for winning the SEC East last season. That now bumps up his salary to $4.25 million annually.

“We recognized early in Coach Mac's tenure that he totally changed the vibe around football for The Gator Nation and in the building,” Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley said in a statement. “From the moment he set foot on this campus, he has steadily put into place his blueprint for the football program. His efforts have been relentless.”

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Florida is currently listed with 55/1 odds to win the College Football Playoffs next season. Alabama is the favorite with 5/1 odds while Clemson and Oklahoma each have 15/2 odds.

McElwain went 10-4 last season and 7-1 in the SEC, his first with the program. They lost to Alabama in the SEC Championship and then fell in the Citrus Bowl. Still, the 10 wins was a big plus for Florida, who had won just 10 total games the two years prior. McElwain came from Colorado State, where he went 22-16 in three seasons, including a 10-2 season in 2014.
