Louisiana’s Assistants To Get Bonus Pay
LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — Louisiana's assistant football coaches are in line for bonus pay for their work leading to the Ragin' Cajuns' Dec. 20 New Orleans Bowl win over Nevada.
Athletic Director Scott Farmer says all bonuses are paid by the Ragin' Cajun Athletic Foundation support group — not by the state.
The Advertiser reports Farmer did not know the exact amount of the bonuses, but it's likely to be in line with past pay to assistants. Those coaches also received bonuses after each of the Cajuns' first three New Orleans Bowl wins, in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
Coach Mark Hudspeth is contractually guaranteed a bowl bonus and earned an extra $15,000 for getting the Cajuns to a bowl and another $10,000 for winning it.
