The 10 highest-paid college basketball coaches

Yahoo Sports

This year’s Final Four coaches have one thing in common: None is among the 10 highest-paid coaches in the NCAA tournament.

USA Today released its annual list of men’s college basketball coaches’ salaries among NCAA tournament teams on Wednesday, and while the Bluegrass State duo of Rick Pitino and John Calipari tops all tournament coaches in total pay, Oregon’s Dana Altman is the highest-paid tournament coach whose team is still standing this season.
