UGA strength coach Tereshinski given pay raise

Georgia gave its head strength coach a $50,000 raise as he enters his third football season in that position.

Joe Tereshinski Jr., on staff since 1982, will make $200,000 in annual salary, according to information obtained in an open records request. He holds the title of director of strength and conditioning.

Tereshinski moved into that role in January, 2011. Georgia has reached the Southeastern Conference championship game in each of his two seasons running the strength program.

Assistant strength coach Justin Lovett, entering his second season, got a $10,000 raise to boost his salary to $80,000.

That brings the total salary for Georgia’s football strength and conditioning staff to $505,000. Senior associate director John Thomas makes $140,000 and associate director Sherman Armstrong is paid $85,000 a year.
