Collegiate basketball coaches can afford to spend a little extra on their appearance but that does not mean they do.

Basketball coaches rake in a pretty penny over the course of a year. Some of them chose to display their salaries in their sideline attire while others just can’t ditch the track suits.

There’s two types of basketball coaches in this world when it comes to fashion: those who glance in a mirror before they leave their houses and those who don’t.

West Virginia coach Bob Huggins is among the few coaches who prefer more comfortable attire while pacing the sideline.

Huggins is rarely seen wearing a suit or even a button down shirt. Rather, he prefers his all black track suits to allow for easy movement while he walks the sideline with his hands glued to his hips. (Although we can't forget his Mr. Mustard all yellow suit.)

Although the track suit look isn’t popular among coaches, we’ll cut Huggins some slack. He only made $3,250,000 in 2015, according to USA Today. Maybe his budgeting didn’t allow for any fashion improvements.

Our very own Saul Phillips isn’t among the highest paid basketball coaches, but his wallet still isn’t hurting. He makes $561,000, according to Ohio Athletics. Despite having a smaller salary than a lot of other coaches, Phillips still manages to clean up nicely in his mostly black or charcoal suits accompanied by a green tie.

Regardless of whether a coach sports an Armani suit or a spirited track pullover, let us all be thankful that it’s not the '70s when Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim thought his best option was to wear a plaid suit jacket and striped tie together. I’d say we’ve come a long way.
