Scott Cochran Took Pay Cut From Georgia To Leave Alabama

Scott Cochran took a pay cut from Georgia to leave Alabama.

Cochran shocked the college football world two weeks ago. As arguably the best-known strength and conditioning coach in the sport, he had become synonymous with Crimson Tide football.

That all changed when he accepted a special teams coordinator position with Kirby Smart and Georgia.

Alabama head coach Nick Saban was visibly agitated by the move, and made it clear with both his words and his actions. In addition to making some snippy remarks about Cochran’s departure, Saban also prevented him from saying goodbye to the team.

The big question over the past few weeks, many have speculated how much precisely the Bulldogs had offered Cochran to get him to leave behind Alabama.

Now we have our answer.

According to John Talty of, Cochran’s salary in Georgia will be $550,000. Of that total, $325,000 will be his base salary and $225,000 will be additional income.

That is about $45,000 less than the $595,000 he made from the Crimson Tide last year.

Clearly Cochran did not make this move for money. He saw it as an opportunity to get a job that would lead him to more respectable jobs in the future.

Will that bet pay off? Time will tell.
