Georgia Misses out on Anderson

By  | 

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Mike Anderson's new $1.35 million annual
contract provides the Missouri coach a healthy raise as well as a
big bonus if he stays at the school.

Athletic director Mike Alden told the Columbia Daily Tribune
that an additional $1.4 million bonus awaits if Anderson sticks
around the full seven years of the deal.

The contract boosts Anderson's annual salary by $500,000. He
will also earn a deferred annual payment of $200,000, but only if
he doesn't leave early and take another job. Performance incentives
could increase his yearly earnings above $2 million.

The third-year coach led Missouri to a school-record 31 wins and
three NCAA tournament victories in the school's first appearance
since 2003.
