Just a quick run through of the more important points of Sonny Dykes's new contract. Sonny's new deal averages around $2.41 million a year. Dykes is set to earn $2.3 million in 2016, $2.375 million in 2017, $2.45 million in 2018 and $2.525 million in 2019. He also will collect a one-time $250,000 signing bonus.

Sonny will also have a boatload of bonuses on the table for both accomplishments on and off the field. There will be tons of bonuses for winning X number of football games a year and achieving bowl eligibility, plus additional bonuses for beating Stanford ($25k), UCLA, USC and Oregon ($10k each). Dykes has yet to beat any of those four teams. Dykes will also earn very strong academic bonuses for great performances in team GPA, team graduation rate and APR.

The full set of bonuses are below.

As previously known, Dykes's contract will rollover another year if Cal wins at least 7 games and achieves at least a single year 980 APR.

If Dykes were to be terminated with three or more years left on his deal, the buyout would be at around $2 million. Termination with one to two years would afford Dykes a $1.5 million buyout, one to two years at $750,000.
