Which school paid the most per win in 2009-2010 season?

New, 2 comments

Would you believe me if I told you that Jeff Capel was the most expensive coach in the Big 12 conference in the 2009-2010 basketball season?  Probably not, most everyone would say that would be Bill Self and the majority of the time they would be correct. But in this situation, I decided to look at each schools amount of wins last season and see what it cost each school in comparison to the salary of their head coach.  The results are interesting especially seeing who got the best bargains, so to speak, last season.

Jeff Capel, Oklahoma Sooners, $1.5 million

2009-2010 Record 13-18 - Cost per Win: $115,384

Bill Self, Kansas Jayhawks, $3 million
