BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - California has announced that new coach Sonny Dykes' contract is for five years and $9.7 million over the life of the deal that lasts through the 2017 season.
The terms released by the university Friday contain several performance and academic bonuses. Dykes also received a $594,000 signing bonus, which is approximately the buyout from his contract at Louisiana Tech.
The coach's annual salary is $1.94 million.
Cal hired Dykes on Dec. 5 to replace Jeff Tedford, the school's career wins leader with an 82-57 record. Tedford was fired in November after going 3-9 last season.
The 43-year-old Dykes had a 22-15 record with the Bulldogs, improving their win total each year.
