In most offices, poor performing workers could find that raise or bonus they were seeking is suddenly off the table -- or they may be suddenly sent packing. In the world of sports -- especially college sports, however, a big financial reward of hundreds of thousands of dollars could be coming.

Take the case of Dana Holgorsen (pictured above), head coach of the West Virginia University football team, the Mountaineers, who can expect to earn $2 million-plus this year despite finishing the season with a less-than-stellar 7-6 record.
