March Madness is officially over, and we have a 2014 NCAA men’s basketball national champion: the University of Connecticut. As a graduate of the University of Florida, I was heartbroken to see my Gators lose to UConn; however, I was proud we got to the Final Four this year and even prouder that our only tournament loss came to the best team in the nation. Undefeated in the SEC and 36-3 is also nothing to frown about.
Despite my passion for college basketball (and also college football… thank you, Dad!), I was shocked to see how many athletic coaches across the nation raked in enough cash each year to be considered the highest paid public employee in their entire state. Take a look at the infographic below:
The information is shocking, and it is beautifully displayed. I can clearly and quickly internalize the data, the colors work well together, and the type is simple and easy to read. The only thing I didn’t like was the logo in the bottom right corner.
Who is the highest paid public employee in your state? How do you feel about it?
