Florida OC Roper gets 3-year deal worth up to $2M

Posted: Updated:

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida offensive coordinator Kurt Roper can earn up to $2 million under a three-year contract he signed last month.

Roper's deal is worth $590,000 annually. It also includes a $100,000 signing bonus, a $100,000 longevity bonus if he's employed on Jan. 31, 2015, and $10,000 annually as part of the school's apparel contract with Nike.

His contract, along with those for offensive line coach Mike Summers and special teams coordinator Coleman Hutzler, was released Wednesday.

Summers has a two-year deal worth $190,000 annually. Hutzler has a one-year contract worth $230,000. Both also get $10,000 annually for the apparel deal.

The Gators hired Roper and Summers to replace fired assistants Brent Pease and Tim Davis. Hutzler replaced special teams coordinator Jeff Choate, who left for a similar job at Washington.
