(WLNS) – As if Tom Izzo needs another reason to celebrate this storybook season, he’s also getting some money for marching on in the tournament.
That’s because thanks to a clause in his contract, Coach Izzo has netted an extra $175,000 in bonuses.
Our media partners at MLive say Izzo gets $25,000 for making the NCAA tournament and another 25 for reaching the Sweet 16.
From there making it to the Final Four earns him another $100,000. Plus he gets another $25,000 on top of that from his Nike contract.
Many fans say he’s worth every penny.
