John Calipari was unable to win his second national title in three years Monday night, as Kentucky fell to UConn 60-54.

He also missed out on a huge bonus with the loss.

A $375K bonus, to be exact.

Forbes.com has the details:

Calipari has already made $275,000 from bonuses for making the Sweet 16 ($100,000) and Final Four ($175,000), and a victory over Connecticut tonight would be worth another $375,000. That adds up to a potential total of $650,000, a nice 12% bonus on the $5.4 million or so he makes in base pay.

UConn coach Kevin Ollie, meanwhile, took home a $66,666 bonus with the win.

The players, meanwhile, didn’t earn any cash, of course.
