So, Chris Finch, right? Spent over ten years coaching basketball overseas before he got his first taste of the G-League in 2009. Fast forward a bit, and now he’s sitting pretty as the head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Quite a climb, huh?

But you’re probably wondering, how much is he raking in now? Well, let’s dive into Finch’s salary, his net worth, and his coaching record. We’ll spill all the beans.

Let’s start with the contract and salary. Finch was scooped up by the Timberwolves in the middle of the 2020-21 season. His first contract? It only lasted until the 2021-22 season. But then, after he broke the Timberwolves’ 14-year playoff drought, they handed him a four-year extension. He’s currently in year two of that deal.

The exact dollar amount on that contract? Not disclosed. But we can make an educated guess about Finch’s yearly salary.

Here’s what we know. Finch isn’t one of the top five highest-paid coaches in the NBA. So, his salary is under 7.25 million dollars per year, which is what the fifth-highest-paid coach in the NBA (Rick Carlisle) pockets annually.

So, what’s a reasonable estimate? Finch probably pulls in around four to five million dollars a year. Joe Mazzulla, another coach with no NBA playing experience who was signed to an extension after impressing early on, makes about 4.7 million dollars annually. Finch shouldn’t be too far off that mark.

Now, let’s talk net worth. In 2023, Finch’s net worth is estimated to be around five million dollars. We can’t say for sure, but it’s likely that most of Finch’s wealth has come from his coaching career.

Remember, Finch spent a lot of time overseas and in the G-League. He got his first NBA gig in 2011 as an assistant on the Houston Rockets. Then, he spent the next decade as an assistant coach with four different teams before finally landing the Timberwolves gig in 2021.

Let’s look at his head coaching record. In 222 career games, Finch’s regular season head coaching record is 117-105 (win percentage of 52.7%). With those numbers, Finch is 137th all-time in wins and 89th in all-time in win percentage.

Playoff-wise? Finch’s record is 3-8 (27.3%) in 11 career playoff games.

And in case you’re curious, Chris Finch is not married and does not have any children. So there you have it, all things Chris Finch!
