THE DEAL FOR PITINO

Highlights of Gophers coach Richard Pitino’s contract:

• Pitino will make $1.2 million per year ($500,000 base salary plus $700,000 supplemental) on a six-year contract. The base portion of his salary will increase by at least 5 percent every year.

• He will get a lump sum bonus of $400,000 on April 30, 2016, and on the same date in 2019 if he is still coaching at the U.

• He has the use of a private jet for recruiting. Expenses for the jet cannot exceed $50,000 in a fiscal year.

• If Minnesota fires him, the buyout is half his base salary plus all supplemental salary remaining. However, if Pitino gets another “comparable” job, Minnesota’s payments to Pitino would end. That’s a provision Minnesota did not have with Tubby Smith.

• If Pitino wants to get out of his contract early, he has to pay $1.5 million before April 30, 2016, and $500,000 any time after that for the length of the contract.

• Pitino has several bonus clauses, including $50,000 for making the NCAA tournament and another $50,000 if the Gophers make the Sweet 16. He gets $50,000 if Minnesota has a winning record in the Big Ten — something Smith never accomplished.
