Bob Bradley's contract details, Nike's USSF deal
Upon further examination of U.S. Soccer Federation documents, the Insider has unearthed additional details of World Cup Coach Bob Bradley's contract as well as Nike's contributions to the USSF.
Bradley is earning $41,667 per month in 2010 ($500,004 overall), an increase from the $37,500 he received last year. He is also guaranteed $100,000 annually as part of a marketing guarantee, pushing his total to more than $600,000, and eligible for "various incentive compensation" based on the national team's performance. No details were provided, but he undoubtedly met major goals by winning Group C and guiding the squad to the second round of the World Cup.
His contract is due to expire at the end of December.
There is also a clause in the contract that, in case of termination without cause, guarantees compensation until the end of the calendar year. (If he were not to return but accepted a new job, USSF payments would presumably end.)
As for Nike.....
Nike's contract with the USSF runs through Dec. 31, 2014. In the fiscal year ending in March 2009, the company contributed $10,922,935, which included $1.67 million in equipment.
And how pronounced is Nike's influence on the national team?
Asked Friday why he wears training gear instead of a formal suit on the sideline -- and why the players arrive and leave stadiums in casual outfits -- Bradley said: "Nike is an incredible supporter of U.S. soccer, and we feel it's important as a team to represent Nike to show how much we appreciate it."
