Yes, you read that title correctly.
Michigan State Spartans head coach Mark Dantonio, according to Tony Paul of the Detroit News, earned a $75,000 bonus for getting his team bowl-eligible this season.
The Spartans went into the season with high hopes but they ended up being one of the biggest disappointments in the nation as they finished the regular season with a 6-6 record overall.
Michigan State will be able to get to 7-6 if they are able to beat Wake Forest in the Pinstripe Bowl, which will be played at Yankee Stadium in New York.
In case you were wondering, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh failed to get a bonus because his bonus only kicks in if he wins a Big Ten Championship or College Football Playoff appearances and coach of the year awards.
