Coach K makes about $10 million per year

Duke men's basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski was credited with nearly $9.7 million in compensation during the 2011 calendar year, according to the federal tax return recently filed by the university. The amount is the greatest single-year compensation total for a college athletics coach since USA TODAY Sports began tracking the pay of football and men's basketball coaches in 2006. Krzyzewski earned more than $7.2 million in the 2010 calendar year, and just less than $4.7 million in 2009. (USA Today)
