    Phil Jackson is done as a coach so Bill ranks at the top now and estimated at 7.5M.

    For those who say Kraft is tight with his money as a franchise owner,this little tidbit proves that is not the case.

    Clearly he deserves to be, but remember Forbes is just guesstimating.

    Besides, for perspective, Roger and De make close to $7M apiece and that's a sad fact...

    Yeah. It makes you think that, practically speaking, it's impossible to pay a guy like Belichick what he's really worth in salary; if Lovie is worth $6, then what is Bill really worth...$12?...$18?. It's why he'd get shares of his company's stock if he were in industry.

    Its why owners like Al Davis who does not know when to keep an upcoming decent head coach like Tom Cable who had taken his team up to an 8-8 record and owners like Virginia McCaskey well overpaying to keep a coach who is more suitable for DC in Lovie Smith is what seperates owners mentality which affect a teams performance in the win column year after year.

    I would have given Cable $6M over Smith...Cable had that team trending upwards and within earshot of a division title after being a laughingstock since 2003.

    Nice to see Doc Rivers on the list, I wonder who picks up the tab when he, Francona and BB get together, one thing for certain is that it isn't Claude

    Can't be in all of sports, Jose Mourinho makes double what Belichick is making a year.

    Possible. Though the events in Abbottabad showed the Seals have a pretty mean pass rush.

    You sure about that? In the last 5 years, the guy has gone to the Super Bowl with Rex Grossman and to the NFCCG with Jay Cutler. He is clearly doing something right.

    from forbes

    Belichick now takes home more money than any coach in the four major North American sports leagues--some $7.5 million a year, we estimate.

    That can't be right. Time and time again we're told Kraft and the Patriots are cheap as chips, don't reward performance and skimp on financial commitments.

    Kraft is a P I M P. Ya'll know it.

    He should be paid more than Brady IMO.
    He is more valuable to the Pats

    This is the first guy ever to be the most highly-paid coach and the most underpaid coach at the same time.
