Who Pays the College Coach


The same is true for college basketball. North Carolina's earns only $260,000 in salary. The rest of his $1.6 million annual compensation is made up of a combination of funds from the school's $350,000 radio and television deal, about $500,000 from Nike, and a five-year, $3.9 million "retention" bonus that's being paid to Mr. Williams by the Rams Club, a booster group. Duke men's basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski makes about $1.5 million a year, but just $900,000 is in the form of salary. (Wall Street Journal)
