OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -Nebraska football coach Bo Pelini is sacrificing potential bonus income for guaranteed money in his new contract.
Pelini's annual base salary improved to $1.85 million, from $1.1 million, under the five-year contract extension he signed on Monday.
His original contract promised an $800,000 bonus if the Cornhuskers won the national championship. The new contract includes a $500,000 bonus for the national title.
The new contract also gives him a $100,000 bonus for going to a non-Bowl Championship Series game. Pelini got no bonus for last season's Gator Bowl game. The team finished 9-4.
