The specific numbers of Michigan defensive coordinator Greg Mattison's contract were announced Monday, setting the assistant up to make nearly $1 million in 2016.

The Michigan football team announced a three-year contract extension for defensive coordinator Greg Mattison earlier in March.

The specifics of his contract were revealed by multiple media outlets Monday.

Mattison’s salary will increase from $750,000 in 2013 to $915,000 by 2016, with his pay improving by $35,000-$40,000 each season, according to Mark Snyder of the Detroit Free Press.

Additional details from his contract include:

His base salary, which is now $250,000, increases to $285,000 in 2014, $325,500 in 2015 and $365,500 in 2016. That is supplemented by $550,000 in additional compensation.

If Mattison remains through the end of the contract, he will receive a “stay bonus” of $200,000.

Just like his boss, head coach Brady Hoke, Mattison's bonuses reflect the conference title being the primary goal. He gets $25,000 for a bowl appearance, $40,000 for a second- or third-place bowl (Capital One or Outback), $100,000 for a Big Ten championship game appearance, and $150,000 for a Big Ten championship game win.

In March, Mattison, 63, stated he would like to continue his duties as U-M’s coordinator beyond the 2016 season. Should the Wolverines keep him until his contract runs out, he would be 67 entering the 2017 season.
