North Carolina: When Everett Withers agreed to serve as interim head coach, UNC raised his salary from the $330,000 he was making per year up to $500,000 through December of this season. The $500,000 does not include money from outside sources such as radio, TV, etc... which would add to that figure. Come January 1, Withers will be able to return to his former agreement which runs through June 2013.
