U. of California Links Coaches' Bonuses to Academics

January 19, 2015

All new coaches at University of California campuses will have any bonuses tied to the academic performance of athletes on their teams, The San Francisco Chronicle reported. Even if the coaches also have athletic-related bonuses in contract, they will not be paid unless academic requirements are met. Each campus will develop its own plan. New coaches will be judged only after three years so that they are not punished for prior coaches' inattention to their students' academic performance.
