When Kenny Goins' 3-pointer went in, Tom Izzo's bank account went cha-ching.

Izzo, Michigan State's longtime basketball coach, has racked up $225,000 in performance bonuses on this run to his eighth Final Four, including $125,000 for Sunday's 68-67 win over top-seeded Duke.

Izzo earned $100,000 from the university for earning the Final Four trip, plus an additional $25,000 from his contract with Nike. He can earn another $175,000 — $150,000 from the university, $25,000 from Nike — if Michigan State wins the national championship.

Izzo also earned $50,000 for the Big Ten regular-season championship, and $50,000 for playing in the NCAA Tournament.

All that's in addition to Izzo's base salary of $4,157,562, which is third-most among Division I college basketball coaches in the country.
