Miles' new deal has bonuses for Big Ten title, NCAA berth

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska men's basketball coach Tim Miles' new contract also has changes in how he earns certain bonuses.

The athletic department released the contract to reporters on Monday. It was previously announced that the contract would extend through the 2019-20 season and that Miles would be paid just over $2 million this year.

Miles' new bonus structure calls for him to earn $100,000 for a Big Ten regular-season or tournament championship. His NCAA tournament bonuses remain the same, starting at $150,000 for the Cornhuskers earning a bid.

No longer will Miles receive bonuses for winning 20 games, finishing in the top four of the Big Ten, being coach of the year, making the semifinals of the Big Ten tournament or playing in the NIT.
