Let alone a Big XII Championship.
Let alone beat our most hated rival OU.
Let alone win regular season football games.
|Big XII Championship||25%||$3,000,000|
|Make National Championship Game||33.3333%||$4,000,000|
|Win National Championship Game||50%||$6,000,000|
Regular Season Incentives
Therefore, Regular Season incentives need to be installed that are geared towards reducing the base salary depending on how poorly the coach does his job during the season. If you're going to coach the Texas Longhorns like a high school football coach, then you get paid like a high school football coach. (Actually, I have seen better coaching at the high school level than at Texas for the past twenty years)
|Lose to OU||25%||-$600,000|
|Lose to Conference Opponent||10%||-$240,000|
|Lose to Non-Conference Opponent||5%||-$120,000|
Bowl Game Incentive
Player Development Incentives
To fix this, there needs to be bonuses for the coaches to develop the talent while they are at Texas and make sure they get to be in a position to be drafted into the NFL.
|Head Coach||Per Draft Pick||$250,000|
|Strength & Conditioning Coach||Per Draft Pick||$100,000|
|Offensive Coordinator||Per Offensive Pick||$125,000|
|Defensive Coordinator||Per Defensive Pick||$125,000|
|Position Coach||Per Player Pick||$50,000|
The University of Texas has way too much money to throw around to not have an incentive-based pay structure for football coaches. Otherwise, fans can expect more of the same mediocrity since the coaches now get paid the same whether or not they win football games, conference championships, and ultimately national championships.
