Boise State has made a few more tweaks to football coach Chris Petersen’s five-year contract, which goes to the State Board of Education for approval Thursday.
Petersen’s automatic one-year extensions for every season in which the Broncos win eight games will include a $100,000 raise, double the previous contracted amount.
His bonus for a Bowl Championship Series berth (now $150,000) or a conference championship (now $100,000) have been increased by $25,000.
Petersen’s total compensation, including longevity bonuses and supplemental retirement contributions, will be $1.525 million this year. That amount increases by $100,000 every subsequent year, to $1.925 million in 2015. With two more wins, he will be guaranteed $2.025 in 2016.
Petersen’s buyout is $650,000.
The State Board also will review some technical changes to the contract.
