Wade bonus forfeiture, Woodward $8M deal before LSU board

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) LSU coach Will Wade will forfeit $250,000 in incentive bonuses and new athletic director Scott Woodward will receive a six-year, $8 million pay package under contracts recommended for approval by the university's board of supervisors.

Wade is paid about $2.5 million annually and his contract includes a $50,000 bonus for winning the Southeastern Conference regular season title, and $100,000 bonuses each for qualifying for the NCAA Tournament and advancing to the round of 16. However, Wade was suspended for LSU's regular season finale and the entire postseason after a leaked transcript of an FBI wiretap quoted Wade discussing recruitment offers in a way that raised questions about whether he violated NCAA rules.

Wade has since been reinstated after denying wrongdoing and has agreed to contract amendments that not only forfeit the bonuses but allow LSU to fire him for cause and without penalty if he is found to have committed substantial recruiting violations.
