AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -Assistant coaches at Texas are receiving Big 12 championship bonuses, even though the Longhorns didn't reach the title game.
Texas officials announced Monday that a dozen assistants and support staffers will receive Big 12 championship bonuses totaling $44,000. Athletic director DeLoss Dodds said he received permission from UT's president and men's athletic council to cut the checks. Coach Mack Brown will not receive a bonus, the Austin American-Statesman reported Tuesday.
A .0128 difference in the Bowl Championship Series standings sent Oklahoma to the conference title game, even though the Longhorns beat the Sooners by 10 points.
Brown, whose base pay is $2.9 million, could have earned a $50,000 bonus for winning the Big 12 South and another $100,000 for winning the conference championship.
