Pruitt gets bump in pay

As Georgia's first-year defensive coordinator, Jeremy Pruitt made quite the impact for the Bulldogs this fall.
Friday, head coach Mark Richt extended Pruitt's contract by a year to 2017 and boosted his salary to $1.3 million per season. Pruitt had two years left on his original deal at an annual salary of $850,000 per season.
"Our defense has performed at a very high level this season and much of it is due to Jeremy's leadership," head coach Mark Richt said in a statement. "It's important that we solidify his tenure at Georgia and continue to build our defense in all areas, including recruiting, defense and player development."
Pruitt won't be the only coach getting a raise.
Earlier Friday, athletic director Greg McGarity informed top donors that Richt will also have his contract extended.
Other Bulldogs assistants, including defensive line coach Tracy Rocker and running backs coach Bryan McClendon, are also expected receive bumps in pay.
Georgia is also in the market for a new offensive coordinator after Mike Bobo accepted the head coaching job at Colorado State and took Will Friend to be his new offensive coordinator.
