McMackin earns bonus for WAC title

By Ferd Lewis

POSTED:

University of Hawaii football coach Greg McMackin will receive $40,000 in bonuses for the Warriors' just-completed season, but Rainbow Wahine volleyball coach Dave Shoji will apparently not be cashing a bonus check.

In the wake of a 10-4 season, McMackin's bonuses — $20,000 for winning a share of the Western Athletic Conference championship and $20,000 for taking UH to a non-Bowl Championship Series game, the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl — are mandated by his contract.

Shoji, in renegotiating a contract extension last year, agreed to do without the standard bonus provisions in exchange for more up-front money.

"I asked them for the higher base pay," Shoji said.

Shoji's present agreement awards bonuses only upon Board of Regents approval, if recommended by the athletic director.

For the just-completed season, "I'm not aware of any recommendation," Shoji said, adding, "I'm happy with my contract."

Shoji reportedly has an annual salary of approximately $175,000, while McMackin's contracted pay is $1.1 million, minus a 7 percent cut he began taking last year.

Both the football and women's volleyball assistants appear to be in line for bonuses.

"At this time I can't comment on pending issues," athletic director Jim Donovan said.

The nine UH assistant football coaches are expected to receive slightly more than $9,000 each. UH policy says the amount of their bonuses is calculated "... by dividing the combined monthly salary of all assistant(s) by the total number of assistant coaches."

Their total monthly salary totals about $82,000.

Meanwhile, although Donovan qualifies for several bonuses based upon the performance of football and women's volleyball, under terms of his agreement he may not receive them until the athletic department is in the black or his contract is terminated. That language differs from the contract of his predecessor, under whom the nearly $10 million accumulated net deficit began.

UH has run a deficit in eight of the previous nine fiscal years.

Under qualifying conditions, Donovan, whose annual salary is approximately $223,000, could have received approximately $26,500 in bonuses.
