“I didn’t eran it, but I’ll sure as hell spend it”

A year after being named the AP’s Coach of the Year, Mizzou’s Frank Haith has earned another title: Most Overpaid College Basketball Coach. Forbes has announced that Frank overtook John Calipari as the coach who has done the least while still collecting a hefty paycheck.

The article points out Haith’s that in 9 years of coaching “Haith has two NCAA tournament appearances on his resume, none past the second round. His .611 career winning percentage is 80 points below that of the typical million dollar-plus coach. At $1.6 million, Haith’s salary is comparable to those of Josh Pastner of Memphis, John Thompson III of Georgetown and Mike Montgomery of California, all of whom have put up better career numbers.”

The whole list is shown here: Forbes: The Most Overpaid Coaches in College Basketball

The list was compiled using the following metrics:

To come up with our list of the most overpaid coaches, we crunched a variety of metrics — service time, winning percentage, NCAA tournament appearances, Final Fours and championships — and compared them to current salaries fromUSA Today’s database. Tournament appearances and results are measured against total seasons in order to even out differences in service time among coaches – i.e. five tourney appearances in 10 seasons scores higher than five in 15 seasons.
