UCF is backing up its national title claims by paying its coaches' incentives clauses
UCF's imaginary national title has resulted in very real bonuses for the coaches
UCF is putting its money where its mouth is when it comes to its imaginary national title.
If you missed it, following its 34-27 win over Auburn in the Peach Bowl, UCF is seeing as it's the only undefeated FBS team remaining. It's going to hang a banner, it's going to have a parade, and it seems it's even going to be paying its coaches bonuses for winning a national title.
Following the initial reaction to UCF's decision, plenty began to question whether or not UCF was taking this whole thing seriously enough to pay the bonuses, and athletic director Danny White took to Twitter to address the issue head-on.
In case you're wondering, the bonus written into Scott Frost's contract for winning a national title was $200,000. That means Frost, who left UCF after getting a seven-year, $35 million deal from Nebraska, and his coaches will all be getting a nice bonus to help them find new homes in Lincoln I suppose.
