Also, Inside Maryland Sports reported that Mike Locksley received $250,000 to serve as the interim head coach for the season's final six games after Edsall's midseason firing.

On the whole, Maryland paid its assistants $2,783,000, according to the the database, which was the fifth-most in the Big Ten. Locksley was by far the team's highest-paid assistant, with defensive line coach Chad Wilt, tight ends coach John Dunn and secondary coach Darrell Perkins making the least of any of the assistants.

Locksley was the 14th-highest paid assistant in the country and tops in the Big Ten. Auburn defensive coordinator (and now South Carolina head coach) Will Muschamp was No. 1 overall.

DJ Durkin, Maryland's new head coach, was tied for the second-best-paid Big Ten coach after Locksley, making $800,000 at Michigan as the Wolverines' defensive coordinator.
