Chizik has already added $600,000 to his annual salary. Here's a breakdown:
$150,000 — Season with 13 victoriesHe might not be done yet, though. Chizik has a chance to add $750,000 more in bonuses by the middle of January. Here's a look at what he can still earn:
$100,000 — Playing in SEC championship game
$200,000 — Winning SEC championship game
$50,000 — Playing in an BCS bowl game
$100,000 — Being named SEC Coach of the Year
$50,000 — Additional money for reaching 14 victoriesChizik is also eligible for a bonus of $25,000, $50,000 or $75,000 based on the team's Academic Progress Rate. Those are released in June. He can also earn a performance-based bonuses "to be awarded at the University's discretion," according to his contract.
$100,000 — Being ranked in the top-five in the either poll after BCS title game
$100,000 — Being named National Coach of the Year
$500,000 — Winning a national championship
I'm guessing once all is said and done this season, both he and Auburn will probably look at renegotiating the whole thing.
