Yes, those high-profile college coaches are the 1%


Mike Miller

In case you forgot, many college basketball coaches make a very comfortable living. And in case you forgot, some are very, very rich.

How rich? Glad you asked.

There’s a comprehensive analysis done by USA Today every season that usually comes out during Final Four week, but Forbes got ahead of the game with its slideshow of the 10 highest paid coaches. There’s nothing new in there, really. Heck, most of it is done from the info USA Today gathers. (Not that’d I’m criticizing. Much of this blog features links to work done elsewhere.)

But it is a reminder of just how much bank these guys make. (Some are unapologetic about how much they make, too.)

Are they worth it? That’s a never-ending argument, to be sure.
