Kentucky’s John Calipari misses out on huge bonus with loss to UConn in NCAA title game
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.
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.
