Michigan is making sure to satisfy its coordinators with hefty raises.

Offensive coordinator Tim Drevno agreed to a new five-year deal that will play him $1 million annually, according to a sourced report on FOX Sports Tuesday night.

Drevno, who just completed his second season on Jim Harbaugh’s Michigan staff, was making $800,000.

This comes on the heels of defensive coordinator Don Brown, a Broyles Award finalist as the nation’s top assistant, also getting a pay bump, according to Bruce Feldman at Fox Sports.

Brown reportedly has agreed to a five-year contract for $1.4 million a season. He made $880,000 this season, his first at Michigan.

Drevno and Brown were the highest paid assistants in the Big Ten last year.

Harbaugh’s staff is largely intact. He will have to find a replacement for pass-game coordinator Jedd Fisch who left the Wolverines to become offensive coordinator at UCLA.
