Tom Izzo has a net worth of $13 million dollars.

Tom graduated from Iron Mountain High School and went on to Northern Michigan University in Marquette, where he played guard for the Golden Eagles. Tom was a Division II All-American during his college career, and he also set a record for most minutes played.

Following graduation, Tom opted to pursue a coaching career; his first job was as head coach at Ishpeming High School in 1977, but he only stayed for one season before returning to his alma mater as an assistant coach. He held that role until 1983, gaining valuable experience for his eventual career. He was hired as an assistant coach at Michigan State University in 1983, and the head coach at the time, Jud Heathcote, thought highly of him, so after a few years, he promoted him to associate head coach, and when he retired in 1994, he chose Tom to be his heir. Tom’s net wealth was already well-known.

Tom’s first two seasons at Michigan were not particularly successful, as he went 9–9 in both and failed to make the NCAA Tournament. However, things began to go his way in 1998, as his club finished the season with a 13-3 record. Tom has maintained this high percentage win-loss ratio since then, firmly establishing himself as a coach. His best seasons with the team are a 15-1 record in 1998-1999 and a 15-3 record in 2008-2009. With all of this success, he has been able to keep his job as head coach at Michigan State University, signing new lucrative contracts that have only added to his net worth.

Tom’s squad has competed in a record 19 NCAA Championships, but his only one came in 2000, when he defeated the University of Florida. Tom and his team have virtually dominated basketball courts, winning the Big Ten Tournament five times (1999, 2000, 2012, 2014, and 2016), leading the Big Ten conference in regular season seven times (1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2009, 2010, and 2012), and appearing in seven NCAA Division I Final Four tournaments (1999, 2000, 2001, 2005, 2009, 2010, and 2015), both national college records.

Tom has also received multiple accolades for his work with the squad; he has been voted Big Ten Coach of the Year three times, in 1998, 2009, and 2012, and has also been named NABC Coach of the Year twice, in 2001 and 2012. In 1998, Tom was awarded the Henry Iba Award, and in 2016, he was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
