Inside the numbers

John Calipari's contract with the University of Kentucky:

Base - $400,000.00
Each year he decides to stay at Kentucky - $3,000,000.00
Country Club membership - $75,000.00 (approx)
Two cars supplied by the university - $160,000.00 (approx - you know Calipari's taste)
Performance incentives - Unknown

So there you go. If he does well, he will get in excess of $4mm a year. Which makes him the richest coach in the history of college basketball.
