New England Patriots’ mastermind Bill Belichick leads an NFL-dominated list of the highest-earning coaches in sports. Belichick, one of eight NFL coaches in the Forbes top 10, earns an estimated $7.5 million annually. The value, length and other terms of his contract have long been kept under wraps by Belichick and the Patriots. 

Saints coach Sean Payton, suspended without pay for the 2012 season, would be one of the five coaches in the $7 million range which includes Pete Carroll (Seahawks), Jeff Fisher (Rams), Doc Rivers (Celtics) and Mike Shanahan (Redskins).

Gregg Popovich, recently named NBA Coach of the Year, and Bears head coach Lovie Smith have estimated annual earnings of $6 million.

Eagles coach Andy Reid is 10th at $5.5 million behind Steelers coach Mike Tomlin and Ken Whisenhunt of the Cardinals ($5.75 million).
