Most basketball coaches have incentives built into their contracts for making the NCAA Tournament as well as getting their team up to a specific academic standard. Well, North Carolina’s Roy Williams hit all the benchmarks by winning a national title and getting his team to a strong Academic Progress Rate of 985.
Williams had received a total of $925,000 for winning the national title and his base salary for this season was $2.1 million. So it looks like he will end up earning over $3 million for the season, before taxes of course.
