Tulsa finally moved on from Philip Montgomery after a disappointing 2022 season and found a head coach who brings an explosive offense with him. Kevin Wilson signed a contract in the offseason to coach the Golden Hurricane, and we look at that deal today.
Kevin Wilson’s Salary and Contract in 2023
There’s not much report on the details of the contract, but Wilson brings excitement with him that has the fan base pumped. He’ll make $1.9 million this year, a $500,000 increase from his role as offensive coordinator at Ohio State.
While their salaries weren’t found, there are 10 on-field assistants for Wilson’s staff:
- Ron Burton: Defensive Line Coach
- Steve Spurrier Jr.: Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks Coach
- Chris Polizzi: Defensive Coordinator & Safeties Coach
- Joe Bolden: Special Teams Coordinator & Defensive Assistant
- Greg Frey: Tight Ends Coach
- Michael Hunter Jr.: Defensive Passing Game Coordinator & Cornerbacks Coach
- Adrian Mayes: Running Backs Coach
- Koy McFarland: Defensive Run Game Coordinator & Linebackers Coach
- Ryan Stancheck: Offensive Line Coach
- Ryan Switzer: Wide Receivers Coach
Offense is the focus with Wilson at the helm, and the fan base hopes they can find more success in the new AAC. His time at Ohio State showed that he knows how to put points on the scoreboard, and Tulsa’s ready for Spurrier and Wilson to get them to that level, too.
Wilson’s Net Worth
Tulsa isn’t a Power Five program, so it would be tough to see them competing with contracts from Power Five teams. Still, the Golden Hurricane embody an underdog mentality, and they appear to be in good hands with this staff.
Wilson was previously the head coach at Indiana from 2011-16, finishing 26-47. He signed a six-year contract worth $15.3 million at the beginning of 2016 but resigned at the end of the season. The Hoosiers finished that year 6-7.
Tulsa endured a roller coaster under Montgomery since 2015. His first two seasons ended with a combined 16-10 record, with the next three going a combined 9-27. In 2020, Tulsa made the AAC Championship Game before a disappointing 7-6 season in 2021. After a 5-7 finish in 2022, the Golden Hurricane administration decided it was time for a change.
