Georgia coordinator Bobo getting one-year contract extension

Georgia is extending offensive coordinator Mike Bobo’s contract one season, according to a draft amendment obtained under an open records request.

A year was added to Bobo’s three-year contract signed last offseason that will extend the deal now to Dec. 31, 2016 or the date of any postseason bowl played in January 2017.

The unsigned amendment is dated Jan. 27, 2014.

Bobo, entering his 14th season on staff and eighth as offensive coordinator, is still making $575,000 under the contract.

Despite a slew of injuries to top playmakers on offense last season, Georgia finished 17th nationally in total offense at 484.2 yards per game and 21st in scoring at 36.7 points per game.

Georgia set a program record for total offense and finished about a point behind its scoring average record set in 2012.

While there is no change as of now in Bobo’s total compensation, another assistant coach is getting more total compensation than originally reported.

New defensive line coach Tracy Rocker will be making $350,000 total after an additional $50,000 “supplemental compensation” was added to his $300,000 base salary, according to a memorandum of understanding signed March 5.
