Contract details for defensive backs coach Gerald Alexander and special teams/tight ends coach Charlie Ragle released

Cal releases details of the contracts for defensive backs coach Gerald Alexander and special teams coordinator/tight ends coach Charlie Ragle.

California has released details of the contracts for tight ends coach/special teams coordinator Charlie Ragle and defensive backs coach Gerald Alexander.

Ragle, who has dual coaching rolls, signed a two-year deal on April 12, but was on the job as of Feb. 10, and his contract will run until Feb. 28, 2019. He will make $200,000 in base salary annually (from Feb. 10, 2017 to Feb. 28, 2018, and March 1, 2018 to Feb. 28, 2019) and an annual $60,000 talent fee. Ragle also received a signing bonus of $65,000. Alexander, a five-year NFL veteran who formerly coached at Montana State, is scheduled to make a base salary of $160,000, on a one-year contract from Jan. 23, 2017 to Feb. 28, 2018. The 27-year old will earn a bonus of $15,000 if the team has a four-year academic progress rate greater than or equal to 930, and the Bears reach the Pac-12 title game. The same APR condition is applied to his $25,000 bonus for reaching the Rose, Sugar, Fiesta, Orange, Cotton or Peach Bowls, and the $10,000 bonus he receives if Cal reaches the national title game.

If the team finishes the season over .500 and participates in any other bowl game, he earns $10,000, and he will earn $5,000 if the team finishes under .500 and participates in a bowl game. He also received a $25,000 signing bonus. If Cal terminates his contract before it finishes, he's due 100% of his base salary for the remainder of the term.

Ragle, who coached tight ends and special teams with Arizona before coming to Berkeley, has the same bonus structure. Should he be terminated before the end of the contract, he will receive 100% of his base salary and talent fee for the remainder of the term. In standard coaching contract language, both coaches are required to make "reasonable and diligent efforts to obtain employment," should they be terminated, and the amount paid for buyout would be reduced by the amount paid by a future employer.

Cal has yet to release the contracts of head coach Justin Wilcox, quarterbacks coach Marques Tuiasosopo, outside linebackers coach Tony Tuioti, defensive line coach Jerry Azzinaro or coordinators Beau Baldwin and Tim DeRuyter. BearTerritory has made requests for all contracts, and will report on their details when they become available. Wilcox's deal has been reported to last for 5 years, but compensation details have not yet been released.
