For Kirby Smart, winning the Rose Bowl just got even sweeter.
According to this post from Football Scoop, Smart is due to collect a $100,000 bonus for winning the Rose Bowl, plus an additional $200,000 given as a result of a top-5 finish in the polls.
The top-5 finish is not for sure, but Smart won’t have much to worry about. Even with a loss to Alabama there’s no way Georgia falls out of the top-5.
But, just to be safe, let’s not lose.
Kirby Smart will collect a $100,000 bonus for their Rose Bowl semifinal win over Oklahoma, and is all but assured another bonus of $200,000 for a top-5 finish in the final Amway or Associate Press poll, per Steve Berkowitz’s tweet. Kirby has earned a total of $1.35 million in bonus money so far this year, and Georgia’s assistants each picked up a bonus equaling 5% of their base salary with the win, Berkowitz adds.
