A similar report by the Triangle Business Journal stated that the roughly $7.7 million Krzyzewski earned in salary and bonuses 2011 was “more than triple any other employee at the university or affiliated healthcare system.” The report continued to say that Duke head football coach David Cutcliffe earned $1.7 million in salary and bonus compensation in 2011.

    You do realize that when that phrase, "be like Mike" was coined....it referred to the greatest basketball player ever: Michael Jordan (not Mike K).

    Same hole your 'dooks' comes out of.....go back to your mama's basement.

    And I'm absolutely positive that any of the College Coaches within a 50 mile radius; hell let's make it in the country make more money than you, me and most all of anyone reading this thread. I guess that's what your jealous of.

    As for me, I'm grateful for Coach K's generosity with the Back and Spine clinic as I've been a patient since it was opened.

    GO HEELS!!

    "NC State head coach Mark Gottfried’s total pay sits at $1.95 million with $1.3 million more in additional bonus opportunities."

    We are actually comparing these two? How many championships has Gottfried won.

    Haters gonna hate. K does more for the charitable foundations around here than all the other coaches in this area combined. He makes ALOT of money for the university so they pay him accordingly, not sure why this is soo hard for the hole haters to figure out. Ohhh thats right, they are stuck with huckleberry, you can just look at that guy and tell he has zero business sense. bahaha

    and with each jealous post, Coach K's compensation increases...

  • anonymous33 May 16, 2013

    Does Coach K make a lot of money? yes. Give him credit for what he does.
    What most people fail to realize is how much of that money he pays out to charities and other events.
    Emily K Center.
    Children's Miracle Network.
    Jimmy V Foundation.
    Coaches vs. Cancer.
    Scholarships to students and so much more.
