KRZJCHVNS8SKI EARNS THREE TIMES MORE THAN HIS BOSS

DURHAM, N.C. (AP)—Coach K remains Duke’s highest-paid employee.

The school’s most recent IRS documents were obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press. They show that Duke paid men’s basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski (shuh-SHEFS’-kee) more than $3.6 million during the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2008.

The Hall of Fame coach made about $2.2 million the previous year.

Krzyzewski’s salary is about 3 1/2 times that of Duke’s next highest-paid employee. Chancellor emeritus Dr. Ralph Snyderman made about $983,000.

Former women’s basketball coach Gail Goestenkors, who’s now at Texas, also made the school’s list of top earners. Duke paid her nearly $500,000 in deferred compensation.

The salaries were first reported by The Herald-Sun of Durham.
