Hubert Ira Davis Jr. is an American college basketball coach who is the head coach of the North Carolina Tar Heels of the Atlantic Coast Conference.

What is Hubert Davis’s net worth and salary?

Hubert Davis, a former professional basketball player and current college basketball coach from the United States, has a net worth of $10 million. Hubert Davis was a member of the NBA from 1992 to 2004.

He worked as an assistant coach for the UNC Tar Heels men’s basketball team from 2012 to 2021. He took over as head coach in 2021, succeeding longtime coach Roy Williams.

What are NBA Career Earnings?

Hubert earned a total of $16.8 million in salary during his 12-year NBA career. He made an additional $1-2 million from endorsements.

His highest-paid season was his final one, 2003-2004, when he earned slightly less than $3 million from the Detroit Pistons.

Hubert Davis’s UNC Contract Review

Hubert Davis was promoted from assistant coach to head coach four days after Roy Williams announced his retirement.

Hubert then agreed to a 5-year contract with a number of milestone and bonus provisions.

First and foremost, the contract guaranteed a base salary of $400 thousand. To put this in context, that is exactly half of Roy Williams’ previous base salary of $800,000 per year.

Hubert is guaranteed a minimum of $600,000 in supplemental income in addition to his base salary.

Every year, this supplemental income grows by $100,000. He also has access to a $50,000 annual expense account and the potential to earn at least $1.1 million in performance bonuses.

If Hubert is paid $1.8 million per year by UNC, he would be the 60th highest-paid NCAA coach and the ACC’s second-lowest-paid coach.

In comparison, long-time Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski earned just under $10 million in the same season he faced Hubert in the Final Four.

Hubert also earns $750,000 per year as part of a separate Nike contract.
