Contract details have begun to emerge on Chip Kelly’s recent extension with UCLA.

Last month, the Bruins came to an agreement to extend Kelly’s original five-year contract—which was set to expire at the end of the 2022 football season—through the end of the 2025 season. According to The Los Angeles Times’ Ben Bolch, Kelly is set to make $4.6 million next season and will then see his annual salary rise to $4.8 million for the next three seasons. The full four-year extension could be worth upwards of $22 million.

Kelly will carry a buyout, if paid prior to Dec. 16, 2023, that’ll call for 70% of his remaining salary, plus a talent fee and his retention bonus.

Bolch also laid out Kelly’s performance-related bonuses, as called for in his contract:

  • $10,000 for six wins in the regular-season
  • plus $10,000 for the seventh and eighth regular-season wins each
  • plus $25,000 for the ninth and 10th regular-season wins each
  • plus $50,000 for the 11th and 12th regular-season wins each
  • $50,000 for a Pac-12 Championship Game appearance
  • $100,000 for a Pac-12 Championship (Kelly gets one or the other)
  • $40,000 for a bowl appearance
  • $100,000 for a New Year’s Six bowl appearance
  • $200,000 for a NY6 bowl victory (Kelly gets on or the other)
  • $100,000 for a College Football Playoff appearance
  • $250,000 for a CFP National Championship appearance
  • $450,000 for a CFP National Championship victory
  • $25,000 for an AP top-10 finish
  • $50,000 for an AP top-five finish

Kelly also has academic-related bonuses and an additional source of income from camps and clinics, according to Bolch.

The Bruins went 8-4 last season, marking the best year so far under Kelly’s stewardship. With Dorian Thompson-Robinson and Zach Charbonnet returning at quarterback and running back, and a remade defensive staff, there are high hopes for what the Bruins can accomplish in 2022.

Had a deal not gotten done to extend Kelly’s original contract, he would have entered the season coaching out the final year on his deal, potentially leading to distractions and pressure. With Kelly’s contractual situation settled, the Bruins can focus solely on catching Utah in the Pac-12 South.
