In his first head coaching job at Idaho, Petrino can increase his salary by resurrecting the program.
He'll get an additional $13,400 for winning at least seven games, $10,000 if he wins national coach of the year honors and $100,000 for an appearance in a BCS bowl.
Petrino would get $25,000 if the Vandals go to a non-BCS bowl.
The last time Idaho played in a bowl game was in 2009, when it won the Humanitarian Bowl during Akey's lone winning season. Akey was 20-50 in just over five years with the program.
