  • Christian Caple takes a look at the finances of UW’s successful season. Specifically, he breaks down the bonuses in the contracts for Kalen Deboer and the rest of the coaching staff. Deboer has already earned over $600,000 in bonuses this year and that number could top $1.3m if everything breaks the Dawgs’ way in the CFP, APR ratings, and Coach of the Year voting. Of course, that’s all money well spent and the Dawgs will continue to generate additional revenue with continued winning.

  • Kalen Deboer spoke to the media earlier this week about matching up with Texas for the second postseason in a row.
