Bob Bradley earned $818,000 in 2010
NEW YORK -- U.S. soccer coach Bob Bradley made $818,000 in the year ending lasting March 31 and women's coach Pia Sundhage earned $219,000, according to the U.S. Soccer Federation's annual tax return.
Bradley had $449,025 in base compensation, $345,000 in bonuses, $6,600 in deferred compensation and $17,619 in nontaxable benefits for a total of $818,244.
Sundhage made $207,667 in base compensation, $5,100 in deferred compensation and $6,868 in nontaxable benefits for a total of $219,635.
While the period included the U.S. men qualifying for last year's World Cup, there were no major women's competitions during the fiscal year.
A copy of the tax return was released Monday to The Associated Press.
Bradley's monthly salary of $41,667 last year was up from $37,500 in 2009 and $33,333 in 2008, according to an annual financial statement posted on the USSF Web site. He also received a $100,000 marketing guarantee in each year of the four-year deal.
He did not earn any bonuses in 2009.
After the U.S. advanced to the second round of the World Cup, the USSF held talks with Juergen Klinsmann, but they broke off. Bradley's contract then was renewed last Sept. 1 for an additional four years. Details on the new deal were not included.
Sundhage earned $13,333 a month in the year ending Nov. 30, 2009, then got a raise to $14,167 monthly in the year ending last Nov. 30. She receives $15,000 monthly through this November, then gets $15,833 monthly during the following year. Sundhage gets a $20,000 annual marketing guarantee.
The USSF received $10.56 million from Nike in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2010, including $1.56 million in equipment and $750,000 to account for a prorated share of a $6 million commitment bonus received in January 2007. The federation's deal with Nike runs through 2014.
The federation got $4.6 million from its agreement with Soccer United Marketing, an affiliate of Major League Soccer, in the latest fiscal year.
