Holt, Nussmeier get contract extensions

Details are available this morning of some news that broke over the weekend that UW defensive coordinator Nick Holt recently had his contract extended.
Actually, both Holt and offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier were recently given one-year extensions to their previous deals. Both signed their deals last month — Nussmeier on Sept. 29, Holt on Sept. 28.
So that means Holt is under contract through the 2012 season — he was already under contract through 2011 (and technically, his contract now runs through June 30, 2013 the way the contracts are written). Here are the original details of his contract.
And Nussmeier is under contract through the 2011 season. Holt’s addendum was signed last month and also changed some other clauses in his contract, notably that if he leaves during the last year of his contract he will have to pay back 25 percent of the last 12 months of his salary (this is a correction of the earlier post). There is also a provision that his salary will be reviewed each year (he has a base of $350,004 plus getting $300,000 annual compensation for “consultations, appearances and representation” on behalf of the school.
Nussmeier will receive $300,000 this season (and apparently now next year, as well).
All of the other seven full-time assistants have deals taking them through the 2010 season. All of the assistants recently had clauses for bonuses for bowl games changed to reflect the change in the Pac-10 bowl contracts.
Also, UW head coach Steve Sarkisian recently signed an addendum giving him a membership at the Seattle Yacht Club, the contract stating that such a membership is important “to develop relationships and contacts” with “established members of the business community” as well UW supporters.
Sarkisian’s contract runs through the 2013 season and has otherwise been unchanged since his arrival at UW.
