If the Wildcats win, John Calipari will bring home an extra $350,000 in incentives. Add that to the $400,000 he’s already pocketed for winning the SEC regular-season championship and advancing this far in the tournament, and he would have earned $750,000 just in bonus pay alone, according to USA Today‘s Steve Berkowitz. If all that happens, it would move his total compensation for the season to more than $6.1-million.
Surely Bill Self’s agent could’ve done a little better for him. If his Jayhawks take home the title, he would receive $200,000, in addition to the $150,000 he earned for winning the Big 12 regular season championship and reaching the Final Four. The $350,000 in incentives would move his season earnings to more than $3.9-million.
