$4 Million Reasons to Stay in Berkeley
Meet California's Jeff Tedford, who could join Alabama's Nick Saban as a member of the $4-million-a-year coaching club. A new contract that the UC Board of Regents is expect to approve Thursday could pay Tedford $4.285 million in 2013 if he reaches outlandish incentives, which include winning national championships and receiving national coach-of-the-year recognitions while keeping the team's cumulative grade-point average at 2.8 or better, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The average salary of a coach in the Pacific 10 Conference is $960,312, not including USC's reported $3 million it pays yearly to Pete Carroll. Tedford's new deal would include 20 vacation days, 12 sick days, two courtesy vehicles, 30 season tickets, five parking passes, a country club membership and travel expenses for his wife to required events.
