Zeigler, Heeke reach agreement
The new deal will pay Zeigler just under $200,000 guaranteed this season and will begin immediately. The deal includes a $20,000 annual payment for media obligations and have a base salary over $175,000 in the first year of the deal with an undisclosed percentage raise after each season.
The new contract is also very incentive based which could pay Zeigler a lot more money if he finds himself winning Mid-American Conference titles and making NCAA Tournament appearances. Other incentives include attendance rates and graduation rates.
While the deal has yet to be signed, it is expected to be made official over the next few days.
