RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Mike Krzyzewski is once again Duke’s highest-paid employee.

The Associated Press on Monday obtained the university’s most recent IRS documents for the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2010.

Krzyzewski’s total compensation for that year was listed as nearly $4.7 million. That includes a base salary of $2 million, more than $2.2 million in bonuses and incentives and $420,000 in retirement and other deferred compensation.

The Hall of Fame coach annually ranks as the highest-paid employee at Duke. The private school has a longstanding policy of not discussing contracts or salaries.

The Blue Devils appear to be getting their money’s worth: During that fiscal year, Krzyzewski won his second straight Atlantic Coast Conference tournament title, followed that up with his fourth NCAA tournament championship and spent much of the 2010-11 season ranked No. 1.

Krzyzewski is only the second Division I men’s coach with 900 career wins, and enters the 2011-12 season two victories shy of tying his mentor Bob Knight for the record among top-tier men’s coaches.

According to past IRS Form 990 filings, Krzyzewski made nearly $4.2 million in 2008-09 and roughly $3.6 million the year before that.

Duke’s IRS Form 990 also shows football coach David Cutcliffe made $1.7 million. That included a base salary of nearly $1.4 million and $300,000 in incentives.

Athletic director Kevin White’s total compenation was listed at $908,000, including a base salary of more than $775,000.
