Mike MacIntyre's contract includes multiple postseason bonuses

Justin Sullivan

Colorado head coach Mike MacIntyre will receive hefty rewards if he's able to have any sort of success at the school.

The University of Colorado's board of regents approved the contract of new head football coach Mike MacIntyre on Wednesday. Included in the deal are multiple performance-based incentives, for accomplishments both on and off the field.

In addition to the $100,000 he can earn for his players' advancement academically, MacIntyre could see $200,000 if the Buffs are able to make it a bowl game, regardless of the quality. If the team wins the Pac-12's South division, the head coach will see an additional $100,000. And, if they're able to eclipse seven wins in any given season, MacIntyre would become $50,000 richer.

While CU would be quick to reward MacIntyre for success, the school is also protecting itself in case the coach tries to bolt for greener pastures in the future. If MacIntyre decides he wants to leave before the competion of his five-year, $10 million contract, he'll be penalized between $1 million and $2.3 million per season.
