Coaches’ records are going into 2016 season. Except for Minnesota’s Tracy Claeys and Southern California’s Clay Helton, records are as displayed in NCAA Career Statistics database at ncaa.org, which takes into account actions by the NCAA Committee on Infractions. Records for Claeys and Helton are from their respective schools.

“Record at school” data for Louisville’s Bobby Petrino, Massachusetts’ Mark Whipple and Kansas State’s Bill Snyder are based on their current tenures at the schools.

Compilation of figures for Staff Pay, the total amount paid to schools’ nine full-time assistant coaches, is in progress.

METHODOLOGY

EXPLANATIONS OF COMPENSATION CATEGORIES

SCHOOL PAY: Base salary; income from contract provisions other than base salary that are paid, or guaranteed, by the university or affiliated organizations, such as a foundation. Examples include payments in consideration for: shoe and apparel use; television, radio or other media appearances; personal appearances.

It also includes deferred payments earned annually, conditional or otherwise; contractual expense accounts (if unaudited) or housing allowance; signing and other one-time bonuses earned in the current contract year.

It does not include amounts that may have been earned as annual incentive bonuses in other years, the value of standard university benefits such as health care or the value of potentially taxable items such as cars; country club memberships; game tickets for the regular season, postseason and other sports; the value of stadium suites, travel upgrades or spouse/family travel and game tickets.

Salaries reported do not take into account deductions that have, or may, occur because of state government furlough or other similar pay-reduction actions.

OTHER PAY: Income from sources listed on the coach’s most recently available, self-reported athletically related outside income report. Some public schools, citing public-records disclosure exemptions, do not provide the outside-income report.

TOTAL PAY: Sum of university and non-university compensation.

MAXIMUM BONUS: The greatest amount that can be received if the team meets on-field performance goals (including win totals, bowl-game appearances, conference and national championships, coaching awards, etc.), academic or player conduct goals. It also includes possible payments based on ticket revenue or sales or departmental fundraising amounts.

The bonus language of some contracts has not yet been updated to reflect the new College Football Playoff format. Schools whose contracts still mention achievements under the Bowl Championship Series were given the opportunity to advise USA TODAY Sports of how they are interpreting those provisions in the context of the new playoff format.

BONUSES PAID: Amount coach was paid from May 15, 2015 through May 14, 2016 for meeting personal or team performance goals. Does not include longevity and/or retention payments. Includes payments due to head coaches, regardless of whether they distributed portions to other staff. Because schools were informed that the intent is to report amounts paid for goals achieved during the 2015-16 football season and school year, some schools provided information about applicable payments that were made after May 14, 2016.

NOTES

ARIZONA: School pay includes $125,000 payment that Rodriguez will receive only if he remains head coach on Nov. 30.

ARMY: School pay does not include the value of housing that Monken is contractually required to occupy because the U.S. Military Academy, in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, said it was unable to locate documentation of this value.
