Cashing in: Wyoming coach lands large bonus for beating Missouri
Wyoming coach Craig Bohl has a little more jingle in his pocket following the upset win over Missouri on Saturday. That’s six figures worth.
Bohl cashed in on a clause in his contract that states that he receives a $100,000 bonus each time the Cowboys beat a Power 5 team. The last time Wyoming beat a Power Five team was in 2008, against Tennessee. It was the first such win for Bohl, who is in the third year of a seven-year contract, according to the Casper Star Tribune.
Bohl also received a $625,000 retention bonus earlier this year for still being employed as head coach on March 1, according to his contract.
The Cowboys were led in the 37-31 win by QB Sean Chambers, who rushed for 120 yards and a touchdown, and Xazavian Valladay who had 118 yards rushing and a score. Missouri’s Kelly Bryant had an interception and a lost fumble in his debut with the Tigers.
Wyoming coach Craig Bohl picks up $100,000 bonus as Cowboys beat Missouri, 37-31. He gets this amount for any win over a Power Five team.
