Buzz Williams gets big salary raise moving to Texas A&M

Buzz Williams fans

Buzz Williams’ move from Virginia Tech to Texas A&M is paying off — literally.

Williams was introduced on Thursday as Texas A&M’s new basketball coach, replacing Billy Kennedy. The deal was in the works for a while and is lucrative.

According to Houston Chronicle Aggies reporter Brent Zwerneman, Williams’ Texas A&M contract pays him $3.8 million in salary with annual $100,000 raises.

That is believed to be around a $1 million increase from Williams’ pay at Virginia Tech, based on his extension from 2016-17.

Just how much money is he being paid? For comparison, Kelvin Sampson is making $3 million at Houston and Shaka Smart made $3.2 million at Texas this season. That’s great money for a college basketball coach.

Between this and what the Aggies paid for Jimbo Fisher, A&M is throwing around dollar bills. Both investments should pay off.
