Increased season ticket sales means bonus for Terps coach Randy Edsall

Maryland announced on Thursday that football season ticket sales have increased 25 percent since last year. That means coach Randy Edsall will receive a $100,000 bonus, according to Edsall's contract.

Edsall signed a six-year deal with the Terps in 2011 that is worth $2 million annually.

Among the incentives in the contract is a $100,000 bonus if Maryland's season ticket sales increase 25 percent or more in a year.

In addition to season ticket sales, the Terps' overall attendance is up 25 percent from last season, the biggest increase of any school within the Power 5 conferences.

Maryland is 4-1 heading into Saturday's matchup with No. 20 Ohio State in College Park, which the Terps announced Thursday is Maryland's first sold-out football game since 2008.

USA Today first reported Edsall's bonus.
