Not to mention other perks (paid radio/tv show).
The base salary and signing bonuses add up to a guaranteed $44,050,000. Without doing the math, it looks like the rest of the incentives over 7 years gets him to the $48M area reported.
The "academic performance" incentive makes me giggle - yeah, go ahead and pretend like that is in any way important, if it helps you sleep at night.
I love Michigan..and as a Bucks fan, I mean that in the light that I respect the hell out of them. They have elite academics, a storied organization and rarely have issues of a criminal nature. Their fans are avid, but i guarantee you one thing..very few fans of the football team would have supported a guy like Paterno had they had the same scenario as Penn State did. Different mentality altogether. EVERY single game i have attended at the Big House had class written all over it. It's the best damned rivalry in sports. I know Mich and Mich St is bloodier..it's just that 20 some Mich players are always from Ohio..and that matters.
