Georgia clinched the SEC East division crown with a 38-0 win over Auburn on Saturday, and the coaching staff will be awarded with bonuses as a result, according to Chip Towers of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Athletic director Greg McGarity implemented a bonus structure for the Georgia coaching staff that pays assistants a 15 percent bonus for reaching the SEC Championship game. The bonuses will increase to 20 percent should the Bulldogs win the SEC outright on Dec. 1 in Atlanta.

Five assistant coaches will receive a bonus check worth $31,500, on top of their base salary of $210,000. Offensive coordinator Mike Bobo will be awarded $45,000, assistant coach Rodney Garner $41,250 and linebackers coach Kirk Olivadotti will get $39,000.

Georgia head coach Mark Richt will receive $100,000 if Georgia wins the SEC Championship game and $75,000 if they lose. Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham will get $75,000 or $50,000 depending on the outcome of the conference championship game.
