ARDMORE, Oklahoma -- Oklahoma's football coaches now have a greater incentive to finish in the top five of the BCS standings.

University regents voted Wednesday to approve amended contracts for Bob Stoops' assistants, giving each one a $25,000 bonus if the Sooners finish in the top five.

No changes were made to the coaches' annual salaries, but the new bonus was added and there was also a change made to how assistants get bonuses if Oklahoma wins the BCS championship. Instead of receiving a flat rate, each assistant coach would receive an extra two months of salary.

The regents also approved a modification to women's basketball coach Sherri Coale's contract that provides her with 20 hours of private plane usage each year. She is signed through the 2016-17 season.
