ATHENS - As expected, Georgia assistant coaches Bryan McClendon and John Lilly have received raises to go along with their new titles.

Each assistant coach will now earn $250,000 this year, an increase from $235,000 last year, according to documents provided by UGA through an open records request.

McClendon, the running backs coach, was recently named the nation's top recruiter by 247Sports.com. He was named Georgia's recruiting coordinator a short time later.

Lilly, the tight ends coach, was named the co-special teams coordinator, along with Mike Ekeler, who is also earning $250,000 this year.

A school official said there was currently no other information on salary adjustments for the football staff. That doesn't mean some couldn't happen later.
