Highest paid coaches in the NFL

Forbes released an article detailing the ten highest paid coaches in all of sports, and not surprisingly, the NFL dominated with 8 coaches making the cut.

On top of the list was Bill Belichick, who pulls in about $7.5 million annually. As the article points out, that's a far cry from where he started out, making $50 a week as an assistant with Baltimore back when they were the Colts.

Also noted on the list are Mike Shanahan ($7 million per), Jeff Fisher ($7 milllion annually) Pete Carroll (also around $7 million annually), Lovie Smith ($6 million per), Ken Whisenhunt and Mike Tomlin ($5.75 million annually), and Andy Reid ($5.5 million). Of the top ten, only Coach Whisenhunt and Coach Fisher have experience in the NFL as both players and head coaches.

As far as college coaches go, Nick Saban and Mack Brown aren't too far behind.

Other coaches that made the cut in the top 10 were NBA coaches, the Celtics Doc Rivers ($7 million) and the Spurs Gregg Popovich ($6 million).
