Tennessee releases coaching salaries

By staff

First-year Tennessee coach Derek Dooley will earn $1.8 million in 2010, according to figures released Tuesday by the university.

His predecessor, Lane Kiffin, made $2 million last season before leaving for the Southern California job.

Tennessee also released the salaries for Dooley's staff. The entire football coaching salary pool for this staff, including Dooley, will total $4,525,000 -- which is $1.1 million less than the Vols paid their previous staff.

The salary pool for Kiffin and his staff last season totaled $5,625,000, which included defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin's $1.5 million salary (counting a $300,000 payment he pocketed in December) and recruiting coordinator/defensive line coach Ed Orgeron's $650,000 salary.

Here's the breakdown of the annual salaries for Tennessee's new staff:
