For Beck, who served as Nebraska’s offensive coordinator for the last four seasons, joining head coach Urban Meyer and the 2014 National Champions means a significant pay cut from what he earned with the Cornhuskers.
In Lincoln, Beck was paid $715,281 a year, according to a USA Today assistant coaches salaries database. He will also earn $25,000 less than his predecessor, Tom Herman, who accepted an offer from the University of Houston to become its next head coach last month.
Beck’s term began Tuesday and he “can receive compensation increases” starting on May 1, 2016. His current contract, "without further notice to Coach," ends April 30, 2017.
Beck, a native of Youngstown, graduated from regional power Cardinal Mooney High School, the same program that produced Bo and Carl Pelini, as well as the three Stoops brothers, before going on to play two seasons at Central Florida, going on to earn his bachelor's degree in 1988. He holds a masters' degree in counseling and guidance from Kansas State.
