Coaches Salaries

Recommended Posts

I just saw a TV sports report here in Atlanta that 36 high school coaches in Georgia make over $100,000 a year. The highest is the Colquitt County (Moultrie) coach. He makes $132,000 a year and doesn't teach any classes. I wonder how Indiana coaches are doing.

Have you checked the Texas salaries on footballscoop.com?  Ever hear what Gus Malzahn said about getting a hs job in Texas?

Given the extraordinarily low demand for these coaching positions, Indiana salaries are likely stagnant or trending down for football coaches and assistants.

 

I would surmise that given the coaching exodus we have seen in Indiana, where turnover is close to 50% over the past 5 years, the average salary is down.  Long time head coaches-teachers have left the system and been replaced by young, inexperienced and cheap replacements.  This has a downward impact on compensation, as does the relative lack of any competition for most of these positions.  ADs are no longer being pushed to go out and find "program changing" coaches to elevate their football programs.  Case in point.  Merrillville and Lake Central in The Region.  These are two of the flagship schools in NWI,  and both have floundering football programs currently under the direction of inexperienced and unaccomplished Head Football coaches.  Neither school would accept the mediocrity they are experiencing today 5 or ten years ago.  But times have changed.  The bar has been lowered.  It is what it is.

Bravo.  Wish I had more than one upvote to offer you, man.

The football coach at BD is well-compensated, but that doesn't account for everything he is responsible for. Being responsible for a program of 200+ kids, keeping them eligible, disciplined, and playing at a high level is sometimes a 24-hour job. Add in getting them to college, off-season programs, working with the community, parents, etc. THEN we get to game planning and game time.

What did you expect?  Football is king down here in the Lone Star State!  Closely followed by stick ball.  Below was copied & pasted from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.  Article applies to 6A & 5A schools only.  I have no idea what our HC makes (2A school) but he is also the AD & girls softball HC.  Very common down here, in 1A, 2A & some 3A schools, to have the HFC also be the AD.  To the best of my limited knowledge, most HFC's do not teach any classes.

Austin Lake Travis coach Hank Carter is the highest-paid coach in the state, with an annual salary of $155,156. Twenty-eight coaches earn $120,000 or more, including five whose earnings top $130,000.
Read the story: It pays to be in Texas, home of the $98,668 high school football coach
