Interesting look back at the incentives built in Niko's contract extension

...see below from the Coloradoan.

Would have been interesting to see how CSU would have treated the $50k bonus for winning the MW regular season had we won the Nevada game. He still earned a $25k for the top-3 finish. Can earn another $75,000 if we get into the dance. Surprised the bonus for a natty is only $200k....I'd think that feat would be worth many many millions to our school. :)


There are several bonuses available to Medved for on-court success. To be eligible for the bonuses, CSU's Academic Progress Rate (APR) must meet the NCAA's minimum requirement and the program must have no findings or formal allegations of major NCAA violations against it.

$40,000 for winning 20 or more games against Division I opponents in a season
$50,000 for winning a Mountain West title (regular season or tournament). If CSU wins both regular season and tournament, the bonus is capped at $50,000.
$25,000 for finishing second or third in the MW regular-season standings
$75,000 for qualifying for the NCAA tournament
$30,000 for qualifying for the NIT
$75,000 each for advancing to the Sweet 16 and Elite Eight
$125,000 for advancing to the Final 4
$200,000 for winning an NCAA championship
