Alex Golesh’s Salary, Contract, Net Worth, and More

    Alex Golesh made a winning start as head coach of the USF Bulls last fall, but what is his salary, contract, and net worth in 2024?

    Alex Golesh is entering his second season as head coach of the University of South Florida, leading the Bulls to a 7-6 finish and a bowl victory in his first year in charge.

    The 45-0 win over the Syracuse Orange in the Boca Raton Bowl wrapped up a successful start to Golesh’s tenure in Tampa, but what is his salary, contract, and net worth as USF head coach?

    Alex Golesh’s Salary and Contract in 2024

    Golesh signed a six-year contract in December 2022 worth over $15.3 million that will see him paid $2.5 million in 2024. The annual salary comprises a $500,000 base salary and $2 million supplemental pay.

    The Tampa Bay Times reports that Golesh will earn $2.5 million in the first three years of his deal, then from the 2026 season, the figure will move to $2.6 million with $200,000 in base salary and $2.1 million in supplemental pay.

    The supplemental pay is made up of several obligations, including “media appearances and fundraising events.”

    The salary makes Golesh one of the highest-paid head coaches in the Group of Five and includes several performance-based bonuses.

    The potential bonuses included in Golesh’s contract are:

    • $10,000 for winning eight regular season games.
    • $25,000 for a conference championship appearance.
    • $50,000 for winning a conference championship.
    • $50,000 for finishing in the top 10 of the CFP rankings.
    • $30,000 for finishing ranked between 11 and 15 in the CFP rankings.
    • $20,000 for finishing ranked between 16 and 25 in the CFP rankings.
    • $10,000 for a victory over a top-10-ranked team.
    • $25,000 for a bowl game appearance.
    • $50,000 for a bowl game win.
    • $200,000 for making the College Football Playoff.

    Furthermore, Golesh was given $35,000 when signing his contract for moving expenses and receives a monthly supplement of $800 towards vehicle finances.

    With conference realignment being so prominent in today’s college football, USF is also obligated to renegotiate Golesh’s contract if the Bulls join a Power Five conference, and the additional raise “will be at least $1 million annually.”

    Golesh’s Net Worth

    Golesh’s net worth is not reported. However, calculating current, future, and past contracts, the Bulls’ HC is worth over $19.3 million.

    The USA Today Salary Tracker shares that between 2009 and 2023, Golesh earned $6.5 million in annual salaries, and he is due to earn $12.8 million at USF between 2024 and 2028.
