According to USA Today, Michigan State athletic director Alan Haller awarded head coach Mel Tucker a $100,000 bonus that Tucker's contract stated was designated to be shared among him and his staff...

"The University shall pay a yearly bonus of $100,000 to the Program, to be allocated between the Coach, the assistant football coaches, and the Program administrative staff, at the discretion of the Athletics Director with input from the Coach. The University shall such (sic) bonus no later than June 30th following the end of each football season, provided, however, that the University shall not be obligated to pay such bonus to the Program if the Coach had provided notice of termination to the University," the contract states.

Coach Tucker is either dumb or a thief or possibly the combination of the two. I wouldn’t work for him based on this incident.

So he knew that money was supposed to be distributed, per the contract he negotiated, got the full amount back in June and kept quiet? If I got that right...what a POS.
