STAFF COMMENTS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
This is a request for approval of a limited rolling three-year contract for UI’s head
football coach. The coach’s initial annual base compensation without any
incentive/supplemental compensation would be $390,000 (including media
payment). In addition to the base compensation and incentives listed above, the
contract also provides for moving expenses not to exceed $15,000 and a onetime
$10,000 signing bonus.
The academic incentives are adequate – the amounts being equivalent to
incentive pay for conference or national coach of the year. The contract contains
significant payment provisions in favor of the University if the coach terminates
employment for convenience. The employment agreement follows the Boardapproved
model contract.
Staff recommends approval.
BOARD ACTION
I move to approve the request by the University of Idaho to enter into a multi-year
employment contract with Paul Petrino, as Head Men’s Football Coach, for a three year
rolling term expiring no later than December 31, 2017 with an annual base salary of
$175,000 and such contingent base salary increases, annual media payments, and
incentive/supplemental compensation provisions as set forth in the materials presented
to the Board, in substantial conformance with the terms of contract set forth in
Attachment I to the Board materials.
