I'd be interested to see the head coach pay ranking for all NCAA Div 1 schools. Few is 24th of this seasons tournament teams, where does he rank on a list of all teams?

Not totally related, but interesting:

Boise St. adds to Rice contract
COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Boise State has rewarded coach Leon Rice for posting consecutive 20-win seasons and getting the Broncos to the NCAA tournament last month.

Athletic director Mark Coyle announced a contract extension and pay hike for the third-year coach. The former Gonzaga assistant and the university have agreed in principle to a two-year extension and a $43,000 bump in pay next year.

The following 2013 NCAA tournament teams pay their head coach less than Gonzaga does:

1) Kansas State

2) Illinois

3) Cincinnati

4) Mississippi

5) New Mexico

6) Memphis

7) Iowa State

8) Marquette

9) Notre Dame

10) Colorado

11) Colorado State

12) Boise State

It would interesting to compare Few's salary to coaches at all BCS schools, whether they made the tournament or not.

So glad to see the State of California is pissing away money....especially Howland at UCLA!

But it's ok, they will continue to raise our taxes :D
