The Hoyas may be on a bit of a dry spell, but John Thompson’s bank account sure isn’t! Even though the Hoyas missed the Big Dance for the second time in the past three seasons, Thompson still earned a staggering $2,838,271. In his defense, Thompson has led the Hoyas to 8 postseasons appearances in his 12 seasons at Georgetown, including a trip to the Final Four in 2007. The younger Thompson still needs 264 wins to catch his father, who coached at the University from 1972-1999.
