 New UH coach Norm Chow said he notified Dave Aranda, Gordy Shaw and Brian Smith that they wouldn't be joining his staff.

New University of Hawaii football coach Norm Chow will be eligible for a $75,000 bonus if season ticket sales exceed 25,000 and a $25,000 to $40,000 bonus for each victory on national television under terms of his contract.

In addition, Chow can receive $25,000 if the Warriors appear in a non-Bowl Championship Series bowl or $100,000 for a BCS bowl.  

The clauses were examples of the bonus provisions contained in a copy of his contract released to the Star-Advertiser today under the state's open records act.

Chow's contract began Jan. 1 and runs through Dec. 31, 2016.

UH officials redacted the exact salary from the contract released to the Star-Advertiser, instead listing only a salary range of $392,142 to $935,544. But UH sources have previously told the newspaper that his annual salary is $550,000.

Chow's predecessor, Greg McMackin, was paid $1.1 million a season.    Copy of Norm Chow contract
