New Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease has signed a three-year contract with the Gators that will pay him $590,000 annually if he remains on the staff for the duration of the contract.

A copy of Pease's contract was released by UF on Tuesday afternoon, along with copies of the contracts of new offensive line coach Tim Davis and new strength and conditioning coordinator Jeff Dillman.

Pease, who comes to UF from Boise State, where he was the offensive coordinator this past season, will be paid an annual salary of $490,000. Additionally, he received a $100,000 bonus when he signed the contract. Also, at the conclusion of the second and third years of the contract, he will receive a $100,000 bonus.

Davis, who is replacing Frank Verducci as the offensive line coach, signed a one-year contract that pays him $275,000. Position coaches traditionally are given one-year contracts.

Dillman, who replaces the popular Mickey Marotti, signed a two-year contract that will pay him an annual salary of $215,000.

Pease was named to replace Charlie Weis in January. Weis, who signed a three-year, $2.625-million contract with UF in January of 2011, left in January to become the head coach at Kansas.

In addition to his annual salary of $215,000, Dillman will receive $10,000 each February through the terms of the contact. The money will come from UF's apparel contract with Nike.

Pease and Dillman signed their contracts in January, while Davis signed last month.
