    Notes:

    • Lawrence Frank has no head coaching experience at the college level, his stats are for head coaching in the NBA
    • Shaka Smart just signed (another) extension....ten (10) years, through the 2028 season
    • Archie Miller just signed an extension through 2019. $350K is his old salary, as the amount he was bumped was not made public
    • Donnie Tyndall just signed an extension through 2018, he must pay back 35% of his contract's worth when leaving ($850K or so, if he leaves this year)
    • Salaries, terms, buyouts, etc. were taken from a variety of sources
    • Stats were taken from Wikipedia, in most cases (just to be transparent)
