With five national titles to his name, there's little debate that Mike Krzyzewski is one of the best coaches of all time, and Duke is certainly paying the 71-year-old as such. According to USA Today's annual list of coaches salaries in college basketball, Krzyzewski's $8.9 million total compensation is the highest in the country, topping Kentucky's John Calipari at $7.94 million. Chris Holtmann's move from Butler to Ohio State turned out to be very lucrative as the first-year Buckeyes coach ranked third at $7.14 million. Bill Self of Kansas and Tom Izzo of Michigan State round out the top five earners at $4.95 and $4.35 million, respectively.
