Earlier Wednesday, USA Today updated its database showing college football coaching salaries across the country. Not surprisingly, Nick Saban rolled in at No. 1 with over $8 million in salary for the year.
Along with the coaching salaries, USA Today revealed some of the incentives coaches receive. Of course, there are always incentives for wins and making a bowl game, but there are also more unique incentives out there as well.
Enter Randy Edsall. The UConn head coach got creative with his incentive bonuses.
Edsall receives $2,000 every time his team: scores first, is leading at halftime, every time his team leads in total offense and more.
Wow this is a good point. Does Randy Edsall choose to receive first in pursuit of the $2,000 first-score bonus? https://t.co/8fE8aC0SSb

Here’s the full breakdown of Edsall’s incentives.
Edsall hasn’t hit too many of his incentives this year as the Huskies are one of college football’s worst teams. UConn sits at 1-4 on the season and has been outscored 267-108 through five games.
UConn did, however, score first two times this season including last week when the team’s only seven points came early in the contest.
