Houston Nutt made $2.76 million last year in his final season at Ole Miss. The man who replaced him can actually make more than that. If he earns a heckuva lot of incentive bonuses.
Responding to a Freedom of Information Act request by The Jackson Clarion-Ledger, Ole Miss officials have further outlined the salary structure for the new Revel football coach. At Freeze’s introductory presser UM chancellor Dan Jones said the coach’s base salary would be $1.5 million with bonus opportunities that could bring that total in “excess” of $2.5 million.
Now UM spokesperson Kyle Campbell has revealed to The Clarion-Ledger’s Hugh Kellenberger that Freeze has “an opportunity to earn more than $1,400,000 in incentive payments.” He also said the incentives “are based upon performance on the field and in the classroom.”
Do a bit of math — $1.5 million base salary plus > than $1.4 million in incentive bonuses — and you find that Freeze could make between $2.9 and $3 million next season for the Rebels. Nice numbers. But we suspect the majority of those bonuses will be awfully darn hard to hit.
