Chizik contract details released

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn coach Gene Chizik will make at least $1.9 million this year in a contract heavy on incentives.

Auburn released details of the five-year contract on Monday. The list of incentives include $500,000 for a national title and $200,000 for winning the Southeastern Conference.

If the Tigers make a bowl game this season, Chizik gets $50,000, plus double that each for being named national coach of the year or SEC coach of the year and for making the league title game.

He has escalating bonuses from $75,000-$200,000 for winning from 10 games up to 14.

The university also released contracts for the assistant coaches. The top paid is defensive coordinator Ted Roof at $370,000.
