I heard around 100-150k for college coaches and 575k for NBA coaches.
NBA coaches get paid more. College coaches only get paid for about 40 games while the NBA coaches have to coach 82 or more games.
Al Attles, KC Jones, Bill Russell,Lenny Wilkens and Doc Rivers
At the begginning of the 2009 NBA Playoffs, there were six black head coaches in the playoffs--4 in the East and 2 in the West: Cleveland's Mike Brown, Boston's Doc Rivers, Atlanta's Mike Woodson, Detroit's Michael Curry, Portland's Nate McMillan and New Orleans' Byron Scott. As of May 5th, only Brown, Rivers and Woodson remain alive in the playoffs.
