MINNEAPOLIS - The highest-paid employees at the University of Minnesota last year were men's basketball coach Tubby Smith and football coach Jerry Kill.

The newspaper found that Smith earned nearly $1.9 million in fiscal year 2012, which ended June 30. The figure includes his base salary and other compensation.

Kill took home nearly $1.26 million.

University President Eric Kaler was the third-highest paid. He earned more than $588,000 last year.
