Tigers' Pinkel Close To Big Bonus Money

Missouri head football coach Gary Pinkel has already earned 15-thousand dollars in a contract bonus, the "St. Louis Post-Dispatch" reports. Pinkel got the money for winning nine games this season. A tenth win makes his bonus 20-thousand dollars and 11 wins gets Pinkel 25-thousand. Should Pinkel's Tigers play in a BCS bowl game, the coach stands to pick up an extra 100-thousand dollars.
