No wonder Jay Wright is always wearing a (pricey) custom suit — the guy made $2,775,847 this year! Since taking the Villanova job in 2001, Wright has turned the Wildcats into a Big East powerhouse. Wright has guided the Wildcats to the Big Dance in 11 of the past 12 seasons — an accomplishment very few coaches can claim. Wright’s Wildcats have won 30+ games in three seasons, including 2009 when Nova lost in the Final Four to eventual champion UNC.
