Gary’s Answer

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:

Research salaries in nearby school districts
More certifications also means greater salary
Seek out dialogue with current head coaches in your chosen sport when possible

As Gary says it depends on a number of factors. If you are thinking collegiate or even professional coaching down the line, the salaries are much larger. With the larger salaries come stronger competition and more applicants for few jobs. One way you can position yourself is by working as a student assistant to the coaching staff, whether that is simply an equipment assistant or a coach's aid. Internships and volunteering are a huge advantage you have while a student to build experience and your network. The key is to ask as many questions as possible and to work hard!
