Back in May, it was officially announced that longtime NBA assistant coach John Welch joined the Kentucky Wildcats’ basketball staff.

Now, Welch’s contract details have become available, and the well-respected coach will earn $250,000 in his first season with the Wildcats with that increasing to $275,000 the following season through June 30, 2025.

As for bonuses, Welch would receive a $25,000 bonus if the team reached the Final Four. If the team does what we all hope for and wins the National Championship, Welch will receive a bonus of $50,000.

On Tuesday, the Kentucky Men’s Basketball Twitter account tweeted a video introducing everyone to Welch.

In the video, which you can watch below, Welch informs us that he is a gym rat with his players and that his love for the gym is one of the strengths that he is bringing to John Calipari’s staff.
