How much do coaches get paid?

I was watching a woman basketball college game on TV and I started wondering what the coaches make for salaries. Not only the coaches but also the numerous assistant coaches who are sitting there on the bench. I would be curious to get a ball park figure about this subject. Does anyone know where this information is available, not only for basketball, but for football also.
