On Monday, the UA System Board of Trustee’s Compensation Committee approved Kalen DeBoer's new contract at Alabama.

-DeBoer received an eight-year contract that pays him $10 million in Year 1 and increases by $250,000 each year with up to $11.75 million in Year 8. Here are his buyout details and other perks, according to

Should DeBoer be fired “without cause,” he will earn 90 percent of his remaining deal in monthly installments through the end of his contract term. If DeBoer terminates the contract, Alabama is owed a $5 million buyout in 2024, $4 million in 2025 and $3 million in 2026. From 2027-31, there is no payment owed from DeBoer to the school.

-DeBoer will be paid a bonus of $75,000 if Alabama reaches a Southeastern Conference championship game. That will boost to $125,000 if UA wins.

-A berth in the impending 12-team College Football Playoff will lead to a $150,000 bonus, scaling to $250,000 for a quarterfinals appearance, $400,000 for a semifinals run, $600,000 for making the national title game and $875,000 should Alabama win it all.

-Alabama promises to give DeBoer a minimum assistant salary pool of at least $9.17 million for 10 on-field assistants. The university approved 11 contracts today for DeBoer coaches, but special teams coordinator Jay Nunez is not expected to have an on-the-field role.

-DeBoer is in line for $50,000 if Alabana’s football team has a graduation rate in the top half of the SEC and $100,000 if it falls in the top four.

-If DeBoer is named coach Southeastern Conference coach of the year by his counterparts he will be awarded $25,000. If DeBoer wins a national coach of the year award — he was recognized by the Associated Press and Sporting News last year — he gets an added $50,000.

I want to know if Bama had to pay Saban any money. Saban probably had some pretty good language on his behalf.
