Tom Bradley could earn more than $1 million in two years at UCLA

When Tom Bradley decided to move across the country to become UCLA’s new defensive coordinator last month, he signed a two-year contract that will guarantee him $975,000. Including bonuses, his total earnings could top $1 million.

The longtime Penn State assistant coach had most recently worked at West Virginia, where served as associate head coach. According to MetroNews, his contract there was similar: a guaranteed $1 million in base salary over two years, although $600,000 was paid in the first season.

His new contract with UCLA gives him $475,000 in base pay through June 30, 2016, and then $500,000 through June 30, 2017. He received a $25,000 signing bonus, and will be paid $10,000 annually for working camps and clinics. The latter figure may be prorated if he does not work every camp.

Bradley can also earn up to $100,000 in performance bonuses. Continue reading “Tom Bradley could earn more than $1 million in two years at UCLA” »
