K.C. Keeler’s Salary, Contract, Net Worth, and More

    K.C. Keeler found success at the FCS level and eventually took Sam Houston to the FBS, but what is his salary, contract, and net worth in 2024?

    K.C. Keeler saw tremendous success at the FCS level with both Sam Houston and Delaware, but he inherited a new challenge when Sam Houston moved up to the FBS level.

    The administration, aware of the changes coming, paid him to make that transition, but what is Keeler’s salary, contract, and net worth as Sam Houston head coach in 2024?

    K.C. Keeler’s Salary and Contract in 2024

    Publicly known details of Keeler’s current contract don’t include a year-by-year breakdown, but based on known information, his salary averages $812,500 per year.

    According to Dave Campbell’s Texas Football, Keeler signed a four-year contract totaling $3.25 million ahead of the 2023 college football season, the first of Sam Houston’s transition to the FBS level. His previous deal was set to expire that June, though it was never likely that the Bearkats would embark on their FBS journey without their highly successful head coach.

    Keeler has experienced success everywhere he’s been. He produced an 88-21-1 record at Rowan and an 86-52 record at Delaware. He also brought Sam Houston to the FCS playoffs multiple times and led their charge to the FBS level, recording a 3-9 record in their inaugural Conference USA campaign.

    While incentives in the contract haven’t been made available, Keeler did mention when he signed the extension that they were “very makeable,” according to the Houston Chronicle. Like many other coaches, we can expect wins in a season, bowl game appearances, and conference championship appearances to be included in the contract.

    Keeler’s Net Worth

    Keeler has come a long way financially and as a coach. While his salary remains unknown from his time as head coach of Rowan, we know a few things about his contract at Delaware.

    With the Blue Hens, Keeler earned a base salary of $251,000. In addition, he also received a $37,000 bonus along with approximately $22,500 in other perks. One of those perks included the use of a university vehicle.

    We also don’t know how much he made before he signed his most recent extension, but we can estimate that it was north of the $300,000 mark he made with Delaware. With the Bearkats moving up to the FBS level, Keeler’s salary has more than doubled, helping boost his net worth.
