Phillips will make $1.7 million annually for the next five years, plus incentives. Phillips will make a base salary of $400,000 annually, but an additional $1.3 million for participation in radio and television programs and athletically related endorsements, including endorsement of athletic footwear, apparel and equipment, will bring the total deal to $1.7 million, with a chance to make more, based on incentive-base performances.
Those incentives include Phillips' performances in the Southeastern Conference (including wins in the SEC, claiming the SEC East title and winning the outright league), bowl appearances, and academic and graduation performance.
If Phillips were to fulfill all accomplishments, he could make up to an additional 1.1 million in a year.
The head coaches at all three of Kentucky's FBS schools are African Americans now also, which is kind of interesting.
