Mark Snyder at freep.com has the details on Michigan baseball coach Erik Bakich's contract:
- Five-year deal, with nearly $830,000 in base salary, starting at $150K/year and increasing to more than $182K for the 2016–17 season
- $65,000/year for TV, radio, Internet, apparel, and so on
- $25,000/year for a possible sponsorship deal with a bat manufacturer
- Various performance bonuses, ranging from one month base salary for a Big Ten title/NCAA bid to $25,000 for a national championship
The reports at the time of his hiring of compensation of $400K+ were obviously exaggerations as Brandon had suggested. The other interesting thing is that while Bakich will be making much more than he was at Maryland, where his base pay was a little over $100K, his overall compensation is significantly below what Michigan was paying Maloney, who had a contract topping out at $349K in total compensation in its final year.
