Winning the SEC East and advancing to the conference championship game has triggered some hefty bonuses for UGA coach Kirby Smart and his assistant coaches.
According to the Athens Banner-Herald, Smart is set to receive a $100,000 bonus and the 10 assistants will receive combined bonuses totaling another $500,000 after clinching the division title last weekend at Kentucky.
Smart and his assistants will collect another $300,000 by winning the SEC Championship, according to the report. No. 5 Georgia will face No. 1 Alabama in the SEC title game Dec. 1 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
