Jedd Fisch Salary, Contract, Net Worth, and More

    After success in Arizona, Jedd Fisch was hired as the Washington Huskies head coach with a seven-year contract and a significant salary boost.

    The Washington Huskies have their man, and Jedd Fisch will earn a salary commensurate to the success he delivered in his previous employment. Just days after his appointment in Seattle, we have full details of Fisch’s salary, contract, bonus structure, and additional perks as the new head coach of the Huskies.

    Jedd Fisch’s Salary and Contract in 2024

    After guiding the Arizona Wildcats to a 10-3 record that included an Alamo Bowl win over the Oklahoma Sooners, Washington struck quickly for their man following the departure of Kalen DeBoer. Fisch has signed a seven-year contract with the Huskies, that will pay him an average of $7.75 million annually. His 2024 salary will be $7.5 million, surpassing his Arizona income by far.

    As with most head coach contracts, Fisch’s salary will increase incrementally yearly. The new Washington head coach will receive an annual raise of $75,000, meaning that if he remains under the current contract through its intended lifespan, he’ll earn $7.95 million for the 2030 college football campaign. The full details of the salary in his contract can be found below:

    • $7.5 million (Jan. 14, 2024 – Jan. 7, 2025)
    • $7.575 million (Jan. 8, 2025 – Jan. 7, 2026)
    • $7.650 million (Jan 8. 2026 – Jan. 7, 2027)
    • $7.725 million (Jan 8. 2027 – Jan. 7, 2028)
    • $7.8 million (Jan. 8, 2028 – Jan. 7, 2029)
    • $7.875 million (Jan. 8, 2029 – Jan. 7, 2030)
    • $7.95 million (Jan. 8, 203 – Jan. 7, 2031)

    Under a contract extension signed in 2022, Fisch was set to earn $3 million with the Wildcats for the 2024 campaign.

    However, in the days leading up to his accepting the Washington head coach job, the long-time NFL quarterback coach was reported to have an agreement in principle on a restructuring of his Arizona contract that was expected to include a significant boost in pay.

    Washington is just the second full-time head coach for Fisch. He recorded a 16-21 record with the Wildcats in his first experience in the role, skewed by a 1-11 season in 2021. Meanwhile, he served as the interim head coach for the Pac-12 rival UCLA Bruins in 2017, his only other dalliance with leading a college football program.

    While his overall record might not be flattering, his recent success in transforming the Wildcats into one of the best teams in the country proved alluring for the Huskies as they sought out a new coach to lead the program in the wake of DeBoer’s departure.

    “In seeking a new head coach, we wanted to move quickly but thoroughly and sought out a coach who would build on our foundation, bring energy to the program, has a track record of success, is an elite recruiter, and was someone who young men wanted to play for,” Washington Director of Athletics Troy Dannen said via an official statement.

    “We found all of those characteristics and more in Jedd Fisch. It became clear through our conversations that he shares our values and our vision for UW Football, and he is the right coach at the right time as we transition to the Big Ten Conference.”

    If Fisch brings an equivalent level of success to the Huskies as his predecessor, it will prove expensive for another program to lure him away from his new role.

    The new Washington head coach has a buyout of $12 million before Jan. 8, 2025, which decreases incrementally throughout his contract term.

    Anyone who wants to hire Fisch before the end of the 2029 college football season will face a multi-million dollar buyout.

    Fisch’s Net Worth

    Fisch’s net worth under the terms of his Washington contract, based on an average salary of $7.75 million over seven years, is $54.25 million. Of course, that figure doesn’t include pay accrued throughout his coaching career nor any additional benefits provided to him by the Huskies — of which there are several of note ahead of the 2024 college football campaign.

    Washington transitions to the Big Ten for the upcoming college season, and Fisch will earn $150,000 if the Huskies qualify for the Big Ten Championship Game. Winning that game would net the new head coach an additional $200,000.

    Winning the Big Ten title game will guarantee the team a spot in the new 12-team College Football Playoff, and Fisch’s contract has a $300,000 bonus within it for qualification for the postseason tournament. Each win in the playoff will add a further $175,000 to his potential earnings, with the bonus for winning the National Championship Game unclear at the time of writing.

    Finally, Fisch can bolster his salary by up to $125,000 for achieving a certain level of academic success with the Huskies. His contract also has several additional perks, including two courtesy vehicles, a country club membership, family travel expenses — which could amount to a lot as they cross the country in their new conference — and relocation expenses.
