A look at the new OSU coach's $1.9M contract

Former QB Jonathan Smith introduced as new Beavers football coach

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Jonathan Smith has been hired by Oregon State University to be the Beavers' new head football coach, the university announced Wednesday night.

His contract shows he'll make $1.9 million per year for the next five years.

The contract also gives insight into other perks that come along with the job, like a skybox suite, a country club membership and and two courtesy vehicles.

He'll also receive nearly $80,000 in moving expenses, and within "reasonable cost" travel expenses for his family to attend away games.

But if he hits certain benchmarks, he could make an extra $1.4 million in one (extraordinary) season. For example if the Beavs win the Civil War, that's an extra $25,000.

Academically, if the team members are in the top half of Pac-12 teams, Smith will get $25,000. If they make the top two, that's an extra 50 grand.

Here's a look at some of the other incentive items:

  • $75,000 if the team wins 10 regular season games
  • $100,000 if the team plays in a Pac-12 championship game
  • $400,000 if the Beavers win a CFP National Championship Game
  • $25,000 if Smith is named Pac-12 Coach of the Year
  • $100,000 if he's named National Coach of the Year

Smith is a former Beavers quarterback who has been working as quarterbacks coach for head coach Chris Petersen since 2012, starting at Boise State and following him to Washington in 2014.
