Twenty years ago, Chip Kelly broke into the coaching profession at Columbia University, where he coached the defensive backs and special teams.
He was probably making around $4300.
On Saturday, Kelly’s going for $4.3 milllion.
According to USA Today, “Kelly's new contract includes a provision giving him a one-year extension if the Ducks — now 11-0 — win at least 12 games in the 2010 season or participate in this season's BCS title game. His guaranteed compensation in that extra year would be $4 million, the same amount he is scheduled to receive in 2015-16.”
In addition to the $4 million, Kelly will net another $285,000 for winning 12 regular season game and qualifying for the BCS national championship game.
