Willie Fritz’s Salary, Contract, Net Worth, and More

    With Tulane having one of the best stretches of success in football, Willie Fritz has been a big reason for that which has led to big pay days from the school.

    Tulane head coach Willie Fritz has made major strides with the Tulane program since taking it over in 2016. Because of this, he has seen his fair share of changes to his salary. We’ll take a deep dive into his salary, contract, and net worth since joining the Green Wave.

    Willie Fritz’s Salary and Contract in 2023

    Not much information is on Willie Fritz’s initial deal that he signed with Tulane prior to the 2016 season. All that is known about it is that he had signed a contract that would last through the 2021 season — it was estimated to be worth over $1 million annually. Nothing was disclosed about his salary in the first two years he was with Tulane.

    Fritz found good success and improvement with the program, which resulted in a new contract in 2018. The contract extension would keep him with Tulane through the 2023 season. When it was originally reported by nola.com, sources told them that it would be worth more than $1 million per year. USA Today reported that Fritz was paid a salary of $1.6 million in the 2018 and 2019 seasons.

    2020 saw another contract extension for Fritz, as this time he was signed through the 2027 season. According to USA Today, Fritz received $1.7 million in 2020, and it has continued to increase from there. In 2021, he received $1.9 million, and in 2022, he reached $2.1 million.

    Still, no information has been released regarding his salary for this season. It’s safe to assume that he will be looking at a deal that is worth more than the $2.1 million he received last season from the school.

    Willie Fritz’s Net Worth

    Fritz has seen a nice increase in his net worth after two contract extensions in his career with Tulane. Without proper knowledge of what the original contract was worth, it may be tough to determine what he has earned since the beginning, but it could be easier to know over the years since 2018.

    Combining the salary amounts from 2018 through 2022, it is estimated that Fritz has made about $8.9 million during those years. Playing on the safer side, he most likely made at least $2 million in his first two seasons with the program. At a minimum, he has made about $11 million during his time in New Orleans. This doesn’t include any bonuses he might have received, as that information has not been made public.

    His net worth will continue to grow over the next few seasons, especially after their 12-win season last year, which put them in the running for the American Athletic Conference title for years to come. It’s easy to see that Fritz will make more money as the years go on, so as long as he continues winning, his salary will keep increasing with the Green Wave.
