Georgia prorated the deal to compensate Monken for the time he had worked since joining the Bulldogs on Jan. 17. That means he should have received $236,666.68 in supplemental pay after signing the contract.
Monken’s contract also includes a buyout clause in which he must pay UGA $400,000 if he leaves for an NFL job before the completion of the season next year, including a bowl game. The number drops to $200,000 the last two years.
Monken has a big job. He is tasked with rebuilding a Georgia offense that must replace eight starters and underperformed in 2019. Monken also will oversee a quarterback competition that includes five candidates vying to succeed Jake Fromm, including graduate transfer Jamie Newman of Wake Forest and Southern Cal sophomore transfer J.T. Daniels.
