Money for nothing? UCF giving coaches bonuses for 'winning' national championship
With all the talk around UCF “winning” a national championship, people started getting curious what AD Danny White’s bold claims actually meant.
When teams win actual national titles, there’s a lot of money that needs to be paid out to those involved in the team’s success.
That led one fan on Twitter to ask White if he planned to pay the UCF coaches the incentives they would receive for winning a title:
.@UCFDannyWhite You gonna pay the coaches their national championship bonuses or nah?

To his credit, White said the coaches had been informed earlier in the week that they will indeed receive championship bonuses, so they’ll be happy to hear that:

The Knights are going all in on their title claim, as White also said the team would hang a banner for it in their stadium.
Others may not recognize the Knights’ title, but they’re not letting that stop them from laying their claim on the prize in every way possible.
