5. Mel Tucker, Michigan State :$9.5 million Tucker is well-paid enough to have an incredible recruiting man-cave at his home, which Insider's Cork Gaines had the opportunity to tour

4. Brian Kelly, LSU:$9.5 million In November, Kelley announced his intention to leave Notre Dame for $250 million. LSU's 10-year, $95 million contract was sufficient
