Coach K (much easier to spell) claims the second spot on this list, with a salary of $6,043,979. In his 36 seasons as head coach at Duke, Krzyzewski has 970 victories, compared to just 261 losses. Still not impressed…? In 2015, Krzyzewski led the Blue Devils to the Final Four for the 12th time, tying legendary coach John Wooden for the most Final Four appearance in NCAA history. Of those 12 trips to the Final Four, Krzyzewski has 5 NCAA Titles. Even UNC fans will admit he’s worth every penny!
