Transfer List Emerges as Coaches Salaries Shed Light on NCAA Tournament
With only days remaining before the Final Four tips off in the big easy, USA Today looked back at all 68 schools in this years tournament and compiled a list of how much each coach makes. For all you aspiring college basketball coaches, this is just more incentive to keep working towards your dream.
For those that did not make it to the last weekend in college basketball, rumors have already begun to swirl about future transfers and commitments for next season as the April 12th late signing date is rapidly approaching.

Jeff Goodman of CBSSports came out with a list of 200 transfers in Division I and it is highlighted but a handful of players from power six schools. One of the more surprising transfers came out from under the woodworks when Goodman tweeted that Gerard Coleman from Providence would transfer. Coleman was a top 50 player in the 2010 class and was former teammates at the Tilton School (N.H.) with former Connecticut player Alex Oriakhi, who has been released from his scholarship and will look to transfer as well.
Transfers must sit out a year, unless noted otherwise, (Oriakhi would be allowed to play next season if UConn is not eligible for the NCAA Tournament because of their APR score), and are not allowed to transfer within their conference.
