Bonuses for UT assistants, but not Brown

AUSTIN, Texas (AP)—Assistant coaches at Texas are receiving Big 12 championship bonuses, even though the Longhorns didn’t reach the title game.

Texas officials announced Monday that a dozen assistants and support staffers will receive Big 12 championship bonuses totaling $44,000. Athletic director DeLoss Dodds said he received permission from UT’s president and men’s athletic council to cut the checks. Coach Mack Brown will not receive a bonus, the Austin American-Statesman reported Tuesday.

A .0128 difference in the Bowl Championship Series standings sent Oklahoma to the conference title game, even though the Longhorns beat the Sooners by 10 points.

Brown, whose base pay is $2.9 million, could have earned a $50,000 bonus for winning the Big 12 South and another $100,000 for winning the conference championship.
