Nationwide, according to ESPN, 28 football coaches and 12 basketball coaches are the highest-paid employees of state- or state-affiliated institutions in their states.

Unlike most other states, however, Pennsylvania does not require public disclosure of salaries in a way that makes them completely transparent.
