Last July Nebraska head coach Tim Miles was able to make a fashion statement of sorts thanks to adidas, which supplied him with his own pair of Stan Smith sneakers with his face on the tongue. Saturday the head coach showed off another custom pair of sneakers, with these being the adidas Superstar in Nebraska colors with some other images that let everyone know who the shoes are for.
While the outside of the left heel simply has a “Coach Miles” graphic, the outside of the right heel has the Nebraska “N” logo and a silhouette of Miles. While some head coaches whose programs are sponsored by adidas received Yeezys during the summer, what Miles has is a true limited edition sneaker.
Louisville’s new adidas deal could end up profitable for Rick Pitino
Because in the contract, there is a clause that will give the coach significant bonuses based on performance:
He’d make $300,000 if U of L wins the national title, $150,000 if the Cards make the Final Four, $75,000 for an Elite 8 appearance and $50,000 for a Sweet 16 run. He’d get another $50,000 if Louisville wins the ACC tournament and $25,000 if Louisville wins the ACC regular-season title.
Pitino will also get $15,000 if he wins ACC or National Coach of the Year, and he’s far from the only one with bonuses like that. Football coach Bobby Petrino and women’s basketball coach Jeff Walz have similar bonuses written into their contract.
All so that the school and the coach wear only adidas gear.
