    Happens to the best of them.

    Sounds like Art Briles. Didn't he go 2-18 or something like that at either his first or second high school job in Texas before taking the Stephenville job (who was a dumpster fire of a program in their own right), and well, the rest is history as they say?

    Coaching stipends in Ky are a joke!

    I think I remember a thread about this a year or so ago stated that Dale Mueller made about $9200 as the Head Coach at Highlands. Somebody will find that thread I'm sure.

    I'd be tickled to death with just the last 4 numbers (4,000).

    Found the thread I referred to in the above post.

    How much does your school pay in football salaries?

    Why you think it is out of hand in GA. I am sure that the guys that are making that much money work 90 or more hours a week and their programs probable bring in 3 or 400,000 a year. And if I guess right their booster clubs probable raise 3 or 400,000 also.

    I'd be willing to bet it was the same when he was hired back in 94, also. Or if any increase, very little at that.

    That is extremely impressive. Is that a public school?

    I know it goes on, and I know most people don't understand the rule, but it is illegal for boosters in KY to pay coaches because of redbook laws.

    Ha, I've worked with several of the guys who are making 6 figures. They aren't working 90 hours a week, especially during the offseason.

    Why yes, yes it is. The whole school is beautiful.

    It's county by county down here. Some say the boosters can't give anything extra, some say you can give unlimited. Thankfully, my county says the boosters can but you have to put it in your budget so that it's not hidden.

    Yep as a Head Softball Coach I was getting barely half those last 4 digits, and I know there are assistants who make NOTHING who do a ton of work.

    You should be able to look salaries up on the public school's websites along with the teacher's salary schedule. I taught in Ohio (and negotiated teacher's salaries) and our coach's extra curricular salaries were pegged to the teacher's base salary, but I don't know about KY.
