New UH coach Norm Chow said he notified Dave Aranda

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.
