OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — New Nebraska coach Tim Miles signed a seven-year contract that pays him a salary of $1.4 million that increases annually to $2.15 million by 2018-19.

The contract was signed May 4 and released Friday.

Miles’ contract includes incentives that pay him bonuses of $75,000 if the Cornhuskers win 20 games in a season, $100,000 if they win a Big Ten regular-season or tournament title and $150,000 if they make the NCAA tournament.

Miles also is given two vehicles for personal use and a country-club membership. Miles’ wife, Kari, is allowed to travel at athletic-department expense to away games and conventions.

Miles is promised a pool of $720,000 to pay three assistant coaches, and each is guaranteed a two-year contract. He was hired March 23 after five seasons at Colorado State.
