Frank Wilson has received a new five-year contract that pays him $900,000 per year, third most in Conference USA. Former high school coach Wilson will earn $1,050,000 with incentives in 2017. He deserves it.
In one season, Wilson took the Roadrunners to their first ever bowl appearance not to mention him making UTSA relevant in recruiting for the first time in the programs short history. UTSA is set to have a historic season and contend for a CUSA title.
Under Wilson’s new contract his future employer will owe UTSA $1,200,000 if Wilson leaves before March of 2018. The buyout will step down from there over the next few years down to zero in year five.
Wilson's new deal compares to Seth Littrell's at North Texas. Littrell will make a base of $900,000 and with incentives could climb above the $1 million dollar mark. At Rice David Bailiff is believed to make a base of right around $900,000 as well. Meanwhile at UTEP Sean Kugler is one of the lowest paid coaches in the country at just over $500,000 in base salary but could grow to just over a million if he hits all his bonuses and incentives.
At Texas State Everett Withers will make $675,000 as his yearly $25,000 increase kicks in.
