According to TCU's most recent Form 990 filing, which includes compensation data from the 2013 calendar year, Trent Johnson makes approximately $1.6 million in base salary and took home almost $1.7 million in total compensation. That is good for last in the Big 12 and 33rd nationally.

TCU had a horrific 2013-2014 season but rebounded a bit in 2014-2015, ending on a high note after a win vs. Kansas State in the Big 12 Tournament. Trent Johnson's contract runs through the end of the 2018 season.

Trent Johnson was recently linked to the coaching vacancy at Arizona State, but Trent shot down those rumors recently, saying the only job he is interested in is located in Fort Worth:

"Big N-O," Johnson said. "This is my last job. I'm going to finish what I started. We're going to build this program. It's not even flattering to me anymore that your name gets thrown out for a job."

Johnson, 58, will start his fourth season at TCU. He has previously coached at Nevada, Stanford and LSU.

"The word went out when I took this job - that's it," he said. "My commitment is to the players that made a commitment to us, to be in this thing for the long haul, to this institution. This athletic department, this administration led by Chris Del Conte, gave me an opportunity. Trent Johnson has always been very loyal, very committed and very respectful of opportunities given. I have never, ever gone after another job."
