8. Bob Huggins (West Virginia – $3,265,000)
Bobby Huggins (62) has dedicated his entire life to college basketball. From the look of things, his investment has paid off pretty well. Huggins earned $3,265,000 for coaching the West Virginia Mountaineers this past season, his 9th-year at WVU. He previously coached 16 seasons at Cincinnati, before a drunken driving arrest (among other incidents) led to his departure in 2005. Since joining WVU, Huggins has made seven appearances in the Big Dance, with one trip to the Final Four in 2010.
