this topic is up all the time on these boards. Coaches at big confrence schools will make in the 100,000 range.
Assistants starting out from 40,000 as a new coach to 90,000 if they have been there awhile.
Bonuses are big as well.
Smaller schools usually smaller salaries
Vin lananna.... Base salary of $150,000 w/ compensation from Nike and Oregon Sports Network, along with additional incentives, could push his salary to approximately $600,000. If you think it is not true, go ahead google.
This topic has been discussed to death in previous threads. I find it amusing that the 3 examples of salaries listed here are probably the three highest in the country. The average D1 coaches salary in this country is probably closer to 30,000. It's definetly not worth going into for the money. That would be a mean value taking into consideration the number of programs out there that pay their coaches high school salaries.
right on ray.
you have to keep in mind that many smaller colleges ( and even some decent sized programs) staff their "minor" sports with part-time employees. these guys make maybe 3-5000 per season as head coach.
I would say that full time head coaches I know in DI average around 40-50k, though. definitely more than 30k.
DIII head coaches I know get around 30-40k depending on the program.
I dont't know, and never have known, anyone making greater than 60k'ish personally.
My example of the A&M coaches was in response to the guy who didn't think any track coaches would make more than 100k. It was not meant to be representative of the median income of college coaches or the common example by any means. Of course, the average coaching job is probably in the 30k-40k range but there are those at the top who are raking it in big time.
most college coaches make 20-30k, some of the coaching jobs in Big D1 school pay very well but are rarely vacant and very competitive even when available, really you have to be very lucky and patient to gradually build up a good resume for such a job
