How much does a Sweet 16 appearance cost college programs?

Well, according to information obtained by the USA TODAY, it varies. But empirical evidence suggests that advancing this far is extra sweet for head coaches.

College basketball coaches are often eligible to receive a plethora of various incentive bonuses, depending on the details of their contract. These include conference championships, tournament bids, regular season win totals, and tournament performance, among others.

With that in mind, here is a look at what 11 of the 16 remaining NCAA Tournament coaches received as compensation for advancing this far.

Note: Contract information from Duke, La Salle, Marquette, Syracuse and Miami (Fla.) were unavailable, as each is a private school.

Sean Miller (Arizona) - $75,000

Billy Donovan (Florida) - $37,500

Andy Enfield (FGCU) - $10,000

Tom Crean (Indiana) - $35,000

Bill Self (Kansas) - N/A

Rick Pitino (Louisville) - $50,000

John Beilein (Michigan) - $25,000

Tom Izzo (Michigan State) - $25,000

Thad Matta (Ohio State) - N/A

Dan Altman (Oregon) - $10,000

Gregg Marshall (Wichita State) - $60,000

Some of these coaches have already earned additional bonuses by advancing to the tournament, winning their conference, winning an tournament game, etc.

Additionally, all stand to receive a significant bonus if they win the NCAA title.
