Kevin Sumlin found a new job earlier this month.

After being fired and replaced by Jimbo Fisher at Texas A&M, the head football coach was hired by the Arizona Wildcats, who had their job open late in the process due to sexual misconduct allegations against Rich Rodriguez.

With his new job, Sumlin will also receive a nice sum of money, though it’s less on average from his previous job.

According to Brett McMurphy of ESPN, Sumlin’s five-year deal with Arizona is worth $14.5 million. Sumlin will receive $2 million per season in the first two years of his deal, before it raises to $3.5 annually.

Sumlin is also due a $10.5 million buyout from the Aggies, so he’ll be rolling in cash soon.

Sumlin holds an overall coaching record of 86-43, along with a 4-3 mark in bowl games. Sumlin was also named the 2009 and 2011 Conference USA Coach of the Year at Houston before earning 2012 Coach of the Year honors in the SEC.
