Kentucky head coach John Calipari's salary ranks #25 on the list of highest paid coaches in the world (in all sports). Here is an excerpt about Calipari:
25. After sixteen years of NCAA coaching, this hot University of Massachusetts college basketball coach got his big shot with the NBA. Alas, it was for the New Jersey Nets. When the University of Memphis came calling four years later, Calipari moved there. Compared to Jersey, the blue grass smells just fine, thank you very much.
A look at the list:
