New Washington defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox will earn the same salary he made at Tennessee.
Wilcox received a three-year deal and will make $750,000 in 2012, according to a memorandum of understanding released Saturday by Washington.
Wilcox left Tennessee after two seasons. Wilcox will make $800,000 in 2013, the same amount he was projected to make at UT, and $850,000 in 2014.
Former UT linebackers coach Peter Sirmon, who also was hired by Washington, received a two-year deal that will pay him $225,000 in 2012 and $250,000 next year.
Sirmon spent one season at UT and earned $150,000. He was set to make $175,000 in 2012.
