Mark Giannotto, USA TODAY NETWORK – Tennessee
April 4, 2018
Memphis men’s basketball coach Penny Hardaway’s three-year contract is worth at least $4.8 million and includes lucrative incentives based on attendance and season ticket sales, according to a memorandum of understanding obtained by The Commercial Appeal through an open records request with the university.
Hardaway will earn $1.3 million in total compensation during his first year on the job and his salary will increase to $1.6 million in year two. The third year of the contract includes a salary of $1.9 million.
But he could see even more money if Tigers fans return to FedExForum as university administrators anticipate.
Hardaway would earn a bonus of $300,000 during any year in which the average turnstile attendance numbers for men’s basketball games at FedExForum exceeds 12,000. The turnstile count measures the number of fans who physically attend each game.
In addition, Hardaway could earn another $50,000 bonus if men’s basketball season ticket sales exceed $5 million during any year of his contract.

Later he is seen to regret what he said after he said this about his respond:
“It hurts me to this day, what I said, and you know what? It’s going to hurt me for the rest of my life, because I’m not that type of person. I feel bad about it and I’m always going to feel bad about it.”
