So how much does Chris Peterson like coaching at Boise State? In his case, you can put a price tag on it.
Recently, the State Board of Education unanimously approved a new five-year, $8 million contract for head football coach Chris Petersen. Under the contract, Petersen will make $1.28 million this year and an additional $200,000 if he is still head coach of the Broncos in February of next year.
Under his old contract, Petersen would have made $1.30 million this year and an additional $250,000 if he still holds his position in Feb. 2011.
That’s right. The man took a pay cut after the most successful season in school history.
I can’t wait to see what’s in store for him if the Broncos play in the BCS title game this season.
