In fact, that's the only bonus Calipari receives each year, aside from his annual retention bonuses in July. When Calipari agreed to a contract extension back in 2014, he eliminated all of the on-court performance bonuses, leaving one benchmark each year: $50,000 if his team's APR score is at least 950. This year's perfect score of 1,000 means he's got a little bit more change in his pocket this afternoon. Just so you know, Calipari is one of only a handful of college coaches across the country who doesn't receive bonus money for on-court performance. Treat yo'self and the wife to some Orange Leaf, tonight, Cal.
