Stoops looks to earn $250K bonus with BCS title
NORMAN, Okla. -- Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops stands to receive a $250,000 bonus if the second-ranked Sooners beat Florida in the BCS championship game.
Stoops' contract calls for him to get $150,000 for leading the Sooners to the BCS title game, and an additional $100,000 for a win. Oklahoma (12-1) will face top-ranked Florida (12-1) in Miami on Jan. 8.
Stoops has already earned an $80,000 bonus for winning the Big 12 title and another $30,000 for being selected the conference's coach of the year. He shared that honor with Texas Tech's Mike Leach. Stoops' contract also calls for a $75,000 bonus if the Sooners finish in the top 10 in the BCS.
Stoops also will collect a $3 million bonus for finishing 10 seasons with Oklahoma.
