It’s a good time to be a coach at the University of Alabama. Not only did they win the championship Monday night, but they also cashed in big time with performance bonuses.

The nine assistant coaches that were on the field for the championship game totaled $1.1 million in bonuses, according to USA Today. (RELATED: Alabama Defeats Clemson In National Championship Thriller)

According to USA Today, Alabama assistant coaches will receive 18 percent of their base salary since the team won the national championship, and combined with other bonuses the coaches will finish the year with 22 percent of their base salary in bonuses. Alabama head coach Nick Saban has received $525,000 for winning the national championship and SEC championship. Clemson coach Dabo Swinney might be sad about the loss, but he can cry on a big pile of money because in contrast he has earned $975,000 in performance bonuses this season, according to USA Today. However, not everybody is pleased with the bonuses. Cedar Rapids Gazette’s write Mike Hlas had a tweet that appropriately summed up the feelings of many when it comes to the double standard of money in the NCAA.
