Coaches Who Make Way Too Much Money

We all know how much revenue the sports world generates, and while it's understandable that the trickle-down rewards many of the best coaches very lavishly, they still make way too much for what they do for a living. Here's a look at 20 coaches who undoubtedly fall into that category.

Erik Spoelstra will make over \$3 million this season. The Miami Heat aren't going to even sniff the NBA finals in 2016, which makes Spoelstra's contract a total waste.

19. Joe Girardi, New York Yankees

No one is saying that managing a baseball team is easy. However, it's a pretty cushy job, especially for a former player like Girardi who's already acclimated to the travel and rigors that come along with the gig. The Yankees generate an insane amount of revenue, but it still seems utterly outrageous to me that Girardi's pulling in \$4 million per year.

Mike London has led the Virginia Cavaliers to a 23-38 record over his five-year tenure as head coach. Yet, he is making over \$2 million again in 2015 to -- in all likelihood -- lead the program to another losing season.

17. Patrick Roy, Colorado Avalanche

Roy was one of the greatest NHL goalies of all time, so anything he earned during his playing career makes a bit of sense. But he's new to the coaching world, and there's simply no way to justify paying somewhat with such little experience as if he's one of the top coaches in the game.

16. Butch Jones, Tennessee Football

The Tennessee Volunteers won seven games in 2014, and head coach Butch Jones earned \$3.2 million in the process. Paying a coach essentially \$500,000 per win is absolutely outrageous.

15. Rick Pitino, Louisville Basketball

Rick Pitino is one of my favorite coaches going back to his time with the New York Knicks. However, Pitino's bringing in \$3.9 million per year as a base salary alone from Louisville. I defy you to justify this.

14. Bret Bielema, Arkansas Football

Bret Bielema led Arkansas to a whopping 7-6 record in 2014, and somehow managed to get a raise from \$3.2 million to \$4 million in 2015. Wouldn't you love to have a gig where \$800,000 raises are in order as long as you don't do a terrible job?

13. Jeff Fisher, St. Louis Rams

Jeff Fisher was a beloved coach in Tennessee with the Titans, and undoubtedly knows how to get the most out of a small market team. Unfortunately, the St. Louis Rams have not gotten much better under his watch. This makes his \$7 million 2015 salary seem like highway robbery.

12. Stan Van Gundy, Detroit Pistons

Clearly, the Detroit Pistons were in dire need of hiring a big-name coach to help reverse their fortunes last year. But can anyone give me a credible argument that Stan Van Gundy was worth a \$7 million per year deal to coach what will continue to be a mediocre team over a healthy chunk of his tenure?

11. John Calipari, Kentucky Basketball

John Calipari isn't the most loved coach nationally, but there's no denying what he's accomplished. However, he really should surrender some of the \$6.5 million he made last season for allowing Kentucky to choke so badly in the NCAA Tournament.

10. Kirk Ferentz, Iowa Football

I'm sorry, a 7-6 record is mediocre. There's no way Kirk Ferentz should be making \$4 million in 2015 if that's the best he'll do yet again.

9. Chip Kelly, Philadelphia Eagles

Chip Kelly will make \$6.5 million in 2015. That's over \$1 million for each week of the NFL playoffs the Philadelphia Eagles will be watching from home this coming winter.

8. Urban Meyer, Ohio State Football

Meyer is a great football coach -- there's no denying that. However, he's kind of annoying. I don't care how many unexpected rings he wins for Ohio State, Meyer's absolutely not worth paying \$6.5 million per year.

7. Bill Belichick, New England Patriots

Bill Belichick can rack up all the tainted championships he wants -- it doesn't matter. He'll never be worth a \$7.5 million per year salary.

6. Sean Payton, New Orleans Saints

Sean Payton brought plenty of joy to a rebuilding city of New Orleans by winning the Saints' first Super Bowl, and he seems like a swell guy despite 'Bountygate.' However, his \$8 million 2015 salary is outrageously unjust for anyone simply coaching a sports team.

5. Derek Fisher, New York Knicks

Derek Fisher will probably be somewhat successful eventually as a head coach with the New York Knicks, but considering it's his first job in any capacity as a basketball coach, a \$5 million salary in his 2014 rookie campaign was insanity. He should've had to pay his dues as at least an assistant coach somewhere to be given that kind of money.

4. Nick Saban, Alabama Football

Saban is probably the best football coach in the NCAA and his university undoubtedly generates a ton of revenue. However, making over \$7 million a year for telling other people how to chase around a ball for three official hours a week -- 14 weeks a year -- can't make much sense to anyone. Saban's simply overpaid, and he definitely doesn't need any more Armani suits.

3. Mike Krzyzewski, Duke Basketball

'Coach K' is a legendary figure in college basketball, and has been an incredibly positive presence at Duke for a generation. However, he's making \$6 million to do so in 2015. Great guy, but grossly overpaid for what his responsibilities include.

2. Jose Mourinho, Chelsea

We all know how popular soccer is around the world, and a team like Chelsea generates an unthinkable amount of revenue. However, Chelsea's coach, Jose Mourinho, makes a reported eight-million euros per year. This translates into \$12 million U.S. dollars, and crosses the line into borderline gross territory.

1. Pep Guardiola, Bayern Munich

The guy with the ridiculous expression you just got creeped out by -- or laughed at -- makes a reported 14 million euros a season to coach Bayern Munich in Germany. That is almost \$20 million in the United States. Having played soccer, I know that soccer coaches undoubtedly have the least to do with the success of the team than coaches in any other sport. This makes his reward for doing so even more appalling than it was at first glance.
