CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) Clemson's Brent Venables has become the second assistant college football coach to reach the $2 million plateau.

School trustees approved a $300,000 raise for the Tigers' defensive coordinator on Thursday. It was part of more than $700,000 in raises given Clemson's assistants after the team won a third consecutive Atlantic Coast Conference title and made the College Football Playoff for the third year in a row.

Venables joins LSU defensive coordinator Dave Aranda as the only college assistants to annually make $2 million. Aranda recently received a contract worth $2.5 million.

Clemson co-offensive coordinators Tony Elliott and Jeff Scott received raises of $50,000 each, increasing their salaries to $850,000 apiece.

Offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell got a $25,000 raise and will make $540,000 next season.

Lemanski Hall, Clemson's recently named 10th assistant, will make $300,000.
