Based on overall success, tournament success, & paychecks...
I'm guessing Forbes has some new business partnership with UT because Barnes did not make the top 10...top 5 below
1. Frank Haith, Missouri - $1.6M
2. John Calipari, Kentucky - $5.4M
3. Scott Drew, Hell - $1.76M
4. John Belien, Michigan - $2.3M
5. Rick Pitino, Louisville - $4.8M

The schools are paying only a small percentage of those salaries, so I really don't know why fans care about how much anyone is making. Results, I can understand, but not money.
"We compared coaches salaries to their career performances - winning percentage, service time, NCAA tournment appearances, Final Fours and national championships - to determine whose paychecks are most outsized. Salary figures are derived from USA Today database. Tourney appearances, Final Fours and championships are measured against service time (i.e. number of opportunites)."
So Barnes gets a lot of credit for the run from 2002-2008.
Had they only looked at 2009-present, I feel rather certain Barnes would be near the top of the list.
Is there a CBI version of the overpaid list Barnes can pay an entry fee to get in?
Ouch. True but ouch.
Interesting that Alabama's coach hasn't had the same success he had at Virginia Commonwealth.
