Golloway's Contract Loaded With Incentives

New Auburn baseball coach Sunny Golloway will earn a base salary of $650,000 per year with the Tigers, but has a chance to make more than that if his team has success on the field and in the classroom.

Auburn, Ala--New head baseball coach Sunny Golloway will earn a base salary of $250,000 annually from Auburn University with a contract worth a minimum of $650,000 per year through the 2018 season.

He can also earn extra years on his contract by winning games. For the first three seasons of the deal from 2014-2016, Golloway will earn an extra year on his contract by finishing with a winning overall record. The next two seasons, in 2017 and 2018, Golloway's team must finish with a winning record in SEC play to earn another year extension.

In addition to his base salary, Golloway will earn $400,000 a year for speaking engagements, appearances, rights fees, etc. He also has the opportunity to earn money for his team reaching APR (Academic Progress Rate) goals in the classroom. He will earn $10,000 for a rate of .930 or above, $2,000 more for a rate of .950 and above and $3,000 more for a perfect score of 1.000.

On the field Golloway's incentives start from conference play and end with the biggest of all prizes in the sport. Auburn's newest head coach will earn $25,000 for winning the SEC Western Division title, $25,000 for winning the SEC regular season or tournament championship, $25,000 for an NCAA Regional berth, $25,000 for reaching a Super Regional, $25,000 for advancing to the College World Series and $50,000 for winning the national championship.

As an incentive for remaining at Auburn, Golloway will receive $20,000 for each of the first five years he is with the program. If he is still employed he will receive the total amount on June 30, 2018. For every year he remains as Auburn's coach after that date he will receive $40,000 per year for the next five years payable in 2013.

If Golloway leaves Auburn before July 1, 2014 the buyout would be $1.25 million. That goes down to $1 million the next year, $250,000 in 2016 and $125,000 in 2017.
