It depends on a number of factors such as high school..middle school...head coaching in football pays the most.followed i believe by baseball..basketball..soccer..volleyball ?..sometimes it depends on the number of participants and the popularity of the sport..for example ..successful basketball coaches can make more than some football coaches..as a former track coach i was paid less than all of the previously mentioned coaches..
I would surmise anywhere from $2500 to $15000 (head coaches ).
Gary recommends the following next steps:
Profesional coaches could make a considerable income. As a wife of a professional coach I can tell you, there is a lot of moving and uncertainty in coaching at times. However, both my husband and I have found it worthwhile because of the young lives we get to encourage, teach, and support on and off the field.
Coaching is more of a blessing than not. It is an awesome responsibility and I consider it important work, no matter what level.
You could start out at the college level as a Football Graduate Assistant upon completion of an undergraduate degree and become an Assistant Coach depending on the division and conference making $50,000-$400,000. Head coaches make quite a bit more depending on the same.
It is a lot of hard work, time away from family, and travel, but if you have a heart for affecting young lives, coaching gives you ample ways to do it.
