Rodriguez's five-year deal starts at $1.45 million per year in base pay and ends at $1.8 million with annual incentives for academic and athletic performance, attendance spikes and coach of the year awards. He will receive $300,000 per year from Nike. The Arizona Daily Star says Rodriguez could owe the university up to $100,000 if he violates NCAA or Pac-12 rules. If Rodriguez is fired without cause, the school owes him half his remaining pay. If he leaves before the five years are up, Rodriguez owes half his remaining pay.
