Florida is banking on the fact the Gators will dramatically improve those numbers this season - and beyond.
The school awarded Pease a $100,000 raise - to a base salary of $590,000 - and a one-year contract extension through 2015, according to assistant coach contracts released Wednesday by the University Athletic Association. Pease also will receive a $100,000 "longevity" bonus if he reamins at the school until Jan. 31, 2014.
In 2012, Pease oversaw an offense with a first-year quarterback, sophomore Jeff Driskel, and a shaky wide receiving corps that accounted for just five touchdowns and SEC-low average of 146.3 passing yards (114th nationally).
But senior tailback Mike Gillislee did become the school first 1,000-yard rusher since 2004 and Florida did score 37 points during the regular-season finale at Florida State, which had the nation's top-ranked defense.
New assistant coach Jeff Choate, who will coach special teams and outside linebackers, will earn $290,000 next season, a raise of $100,000 from his job as defensive coordinator at UTEP.
Offensive line coach Tim Davis received a $25,000 raise, to $300,000, and a one-year extension through 2014. Running backs coach Brian White also received a one-year extension through 2014, but will continue to earn $290,000 in 2013.
Tight ends coach Derek Lewis received a $25,000 raise and will earn $215,000 this season.
