Bama's DC Smart gets a raise

Posted: Updated:
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -

Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart is receiving a hefty raise while boss Nick Saban's salary is staying put.
    
University trustees on Tuesday approved a three-year deal that would be worth $3.85 million for Smart. Saban's terms and salary remained the same except for performance bonuses changed to reflect a four-team playoff that will start in two seasons.
    
Saban will make $200,000 if Alabama makes it to the semifinals, $300,000 for a berth in the championship game and $400,000 for a title. He has led the Tide to three of the last four national titles. He received a deal in March 2012 worth nearly $45 million over eight years.
    
Smart received a raise last year to $950,000 and interviewed for the head coaching position at Auburn.
