ESPN’s Adam Schefter is dominating on Super Bowl Sunday, breaking all kinds of news on Sunday NFL Countdown. He’s got the latest on the Super Bowl head coaches’ bonus information should they win today.
A league source tells Schefter that Packers coach Mike McCarthy can add $500,000 to his wallet with a victory over the Steelers.
Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin is eligible for a similar bonus should his team upend Green Bay.
McCarthy told Schefter on Friday that he expects to win.
“We respect Pittsburgh,” said the Packers’ coach, “but we feel that this is our time and Sunday will be our night.”
McCarthy’s career playoff record is 4-2, while Tomlin’s stands at 5-1.
