Bleacher Report has ranked Kentucky assistant Kenny Payne as the best assistant coach in college basketball.
Here is an excerpt of what the site says about Payne:
Kentucky figured out how to keep top assistant Kenny Payne, though: with a seven-figure contract.
Payne was inked to a two-year, $1 million deal in May, and at the time, head coach John Calipari noted that his "feel for the game and ability to develop players is second to none," according to Mike DeCourcy of Sporting News.
Michigan State's Dwayne Stephens is No. 2 on the list. Kurtis Townsend (Kansas), Bacari Alexander (Michigan) and Steve Robinson (North Carolina) round out the top 5.
