Cal football coach Sonny Dykes’ new contract calls for him to earn $2.65 million in 2016, with raises each year through 2019.
Details of the deal, released Wednesday by the university, also include a $25,000 bonus for beating Stanford, which Dykes has yet to achieve in three seasons. Cal has lost the Big Game the past six seasons.
Dykes received the extension after guiding the Bears to an 8-5 record, including a victory in the Armed Forces Bowl a bowl last season, then considering options elsewhere. He interviewed at Missouri and was mentioned in connection with a couple other jobs.
Dykes will receive an annual base salary of $350,000 plus a talent fee, which covers personal appearances and media commitments and is not paid by taxpayer money.
Including the talent fee, his total salary will be $2.725 million in 2017, $2.8 million in 2018 and $2.87 million in 2019. He also will collect a one-time $250,000 signing bonus.
He would earn bonuses of $50,000 each for winning either Pac-12 or national coach of the year honors. A Rose Bowl appearance would be worth $75,000 and a spot in the four-team College Football Championship would net him a $100,000 payout.
Dykes’ contract also includes bonuses for the Bears’ academic performance, including a maximum of $60,000 if the team achieves at least a 3.0 grade-point average, up to $100,000 for an Academic Progress Rate (APR) score of 1,000 or more, and as much as $40,000 for a Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of 90 percent or more.
Dykes has a three-year record of 14-23 at Cal.
New offensive coordinator Jake Spavital has signed a two-year contract with an annual base salary of $225,000 and talent fees that boost his total compensation to $385,000 in 2016 and $500,000 in 2017.
Tony Franklin, who served three seasons as Cal’s offensive coordinator before departing for East Tennessee State, was paid $507,000 last season.
