Inside Craig Bohl's contract at Wyoming

Details of Craig Bohl's contract at Wyoming have been unveiled and, not surprisingly, he'll receive a significant raise from North Dakota State. 

Bohl's contract lasts for five years and pays a base salary of $300,000, plus an additional $450,000 in 2014 and rising $50,000 a year from there. In all, Bohl is guaranteed $750,000 in 2014 and at least $950,000 in 2018. 

The USA Today Coaching Salary database listed Colorado State's Jim McElwain as the highest-paid returning Mountain West coach (read: not Chris Petersen) at a salary of $1.35 million in 2013. Utah State's Matt Wells was listed as the conference's lowest-paid head coach in 2013 with a salary of $502,500.

Additionally, Bohl will earn $20,000 for each Mountain West win (up to $160,000), one month's base salary for a bowl game or a Mountain West Championship appearance, $25,000 for a Top 25 finish, up to $70,000 if Wyoming sells 10,000 or more season tickets, and up to $50,000 for a team GPA of 2.8 or higher. He'll also receive a $50,000 annual speaker and appearance fee, and a $750 monthly housing allowance. 

By 2018, Bohl could be making up to $1.3 million. 

Bohl signed an eight-year contract extension at North Dakota State in January, paying him a salary of $206,000 a year and up to $15,000 for an FCS championship.

Bohl is 101-32 in 11 seasons at North Dakota State and is in the process of chasing a third consecutive national championship.

Wyoming went 5-7 (3-5 Mountain West) in 2013.
