While it has been an offseason of turnover in the LSU coaching staff, the assistant coaches in place have been rewarded handsomely.
Cameron is expected to earn $1.2 million in the first year of his new contract, then $1.25 million in the second and $1.3 million in the final year.
The deal mirrors that of LSU defensive coordinator Dave Aranda.
Defensive line coach Ed Orgeron and offensive line coach Jeff Grimes both received hefty bonuses as well.
Orgeron, who will now be charged with leading LSU’s recruiting efforts, earned a $150,000 raise in addition to a two-year extension. The defensive line guru is set to bring in $600,000 per year in a new deal that will run through March 2019.
Orgeron is LSU’s third-highest paid assistant coach behind Cameron and Aranda.
Grimes received a $125,000 raise to bring his contract value to $550,000, per Dellenger.
In addition, the salaries of the Tigers’ two new assistant coaches were revealed.
Running backs coach Jabbar Juluke signed a two-year contract worth $265,000 annually, and wide receivers coach Dameyune Craig will bring in $550,000 as part of a two-year pact.
