Preliminary contract terms for Coach Maurice Linguist

New, 38 comments

Some of this has been talked about elsewhere, but I just got my hands on a copy of the memorandum of understanding between the university and Coach Mo.

None of this is final, these contracts take a while to work their way through but it will look something like this.

Guaranteed Pay

  • Base Salary $475,000
  • Additional compensation $200,000

These two together come to $675,000 which makes Coach Linguist the 4th highest paid coach in the Mid American Conference. Additional compensation usually means money from commercials, TV and radio appearances, etc.

Win / Bowl Bonus Incentives

  • Regular Season Win Total :win 8 games get $15,000, and $5,000 for each additional win
  • MAC East division title with no MACC appearance: $7,500
  • MACC Title Game : Appearance $15,000, Victory $35,000
  • Non NY6 Bowl Games : Appearance $25,000, Victory $60,000
  • Non CFP NY6 Bowl Games : Appearance $50,000, Victory $100,000
  • CFP Game : Appearance $100,000, Victory $150,000

Recognition Bonus Incentives

  • MAC COY - $15,000
  • National COY - $30,000

Academic Incentives (Worth noting that if the team fails to meet NCAA APR guidelines none of the incentive bonuses above are in effect)

  • APR Score: 960 gives a bonus of $5,000 and every 10 points above that add’s $5,000 more
