USF baseball coach Billy Mohl's deal: 5 years, $1.05 million

New USF baseball coach Billy Mohl has signed a five-year contract that will pay slightly more than $1 million in total compensation over the life of the deal.

The contract, signed June 30, was provided to the Tampa Bay Times upon a public-records request. Mohl's initial base salary in Year One ($150,000) is slightly higher than the one earned by predecessor Mark Kingston ($140,000), who resigned after three seasons and two NCAA Tournament berths for the same job at South Carolina.

Toss in $50,000 in additional compensation and benefits, and Mohl -- who never previously has been a head coach -- will receive $200,000 in Year One, with his annual compensation rising to $220,000 by his final season.

Incentives include $30,000 for a national title, $20,000 for a College World Series appearance and $10,000 if the Bulls make an NCAA Super Regional.

The salary pool for Mohl's staff starts at $190,000 and increases to $210,000 by the end of the deal. A total of $5,000 is added to the pool each time the Bulls earn an NCAA Tournament berth.

His buyout starts at $800,000 (through June 30, 2018) and gradually decreases from there. If he's dismissed without cause, USF will continue paying his base salary for 20 weeks, according to the contract.
