Bellotti's Salary Could Top $3 Million

Oregon's Mike Bellotti could earn over $3 million this year if he reaches all the incentives in his reworked contract. Bellotti made $1.9 million in 2007, with $800,000 of that coming from a clause that awards the coach 8% of the gross of Autzen Stadium's total reserved ticket sales.

The reworked deal, sparked by UCLA's interest in Bellotti last December, boosts his base salary from $750,000 to $1,127,500. It also adds incentives tied to on-field success as well as TV exposure and players' academic achievement.

Oregon State's Mike Riley, whose team has won two in a row against the Ducks, is paid slightly more than $1 million.
