John Fox gets million dollar bonus if Denver Broncos win Super Bowl 48

There’s more than just a Super Bowl ring on the line for Denver Broncos head coach John Fox today – there’s one million dollars on the line.

Yep – that’s the word from ESPN who was told by unnamed sources that Fox has a one million dollar Super Bowl victory clause written into his contract.

Fox has a $1 million bonus built into his contract if the Broncos win the Super Bowl, a source familiar with the contract told ESPN.

Talk about a pretty nice day if you come out victorious. Not only do you get to add a Super Bowl title to your resume, but you also pocket yourself a cool million bucks in the process.

Of course, on the flip side, if you come out on the wrong end, not only do you not get that elusive Super Bowl victory but you also go home knowing you essentially just lost out on a million dollars.

Sounds like one glorious evening or one day you’ll want to forget forever.

So if you see Fox a little extra heated on the sidelines tonight, there’s a good reason as to why.
