According to Jason Lieser of The Palm Beach Post, new offensive coordinator Charlie Weis will be the highest-paid assistant in Florida history.

Weis is signed to a three-year contract worth $2.625 million.

While his NCAA resume certainly doesn't warrant that kind of money, his success as an offensive coordinator sure does.

In fact, the Gators would be wise to pay up for a good offensive coordinator, especially after a mediocre 2010 campaign with Steve Addazio.

Also, Weis is the last hope for John Brantley, so Florida has a lot (besides money) invested in the three-time Super Bowl champion's success with the embattled quarterback.

Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn will boast the second-best salary among the assistant coaches with his two-year, $1.02 million contract.

Here's a full list of the assistant coaching contracts compiled by Lieser.

Will Muschamp's head coaching contract is a five-year deal worth $2.7 million per season.

SEC Championship Game to be played in Atlanta through 2017

Here's some more college football news from our friend Mr. Lieser.

Lieser tweeted yesterday that the SEC and the Georgia Dome have agreed to a new contract that will have the SEC Championship Game being played in the Atlanta Falcons stadium through 2017.

Atlanta is right smack-dab in the heart of the SEC and I think that having the game anyplace else just wouldn't be right.

The Georgia Dome just screams SEC football to me and I'm glad that the game will continue to be in Atlanta.
