Billy Donovan nets $187K in bonuses

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida coach Billy Donovan has triggered two more bonuses in his contract.

Donovan gets $50,000 for the top-ranked Gators finishing in the top 10 in the final Associated Press poll, which was released Monday. He also earns $25,000 for being named the AP's Southeastern Conference coach of the year, also announced Monday.

Those bring the total to $187,500 -- and Donovan could garner more bonuses.

His base salary is $3.5 million.

Donovan already has earned $50,000 for winning the SEC regular-season title, $25,000 for the SEC tournament and $37,500 for making the NCAA tournament. The NCAA bonus would increase to $75,000 if the top-ranked Gators reach the Sweet 16, $100,000 for making the Final Four and $150,000 for winning the national championship.

Donovan also would land another $50,000 if he's named AP national coach of the year.
