*For reaching the Elite Eight, Painter gets bonus in an amount to be determined by the university's president, in consultation with the athletics director, although this payment must be at least $94,896.

Note: Because Purdue finished tied for second in Big Ten regular-season play, got an NCAA tournament bid that placed it in the Round of 64 and has won two tournament games, Painter will get an additional bonus of $50,000 if the team's cumulative grade-point average for this academic year falls within an annually predetermined range. If Purdue wins in the Sweet 16 and the team's GPA exceeds the predetermined range, this bonus instead would be $75,000.

Does not take into account contingencies that could alter or prevent payment of bonuses, such as academic achievement by players, the coach's departure from the school, future investigations and/or sanctions related to rules violations. It also does not include bonuses for coaching honors, team academic performance, attendance, season ticket sales or the value of tickets or perks tied to tournament participation.

Amounts for Duke's Mike Krzyzewski, Gonzaga's Mark Few, Loyola-Chicago's Porter Moser, Syracuse's Jim Boeheim and Villanova's Jay Wright are not available because their schools are private and not required to release their employment contracts.
