    Coaching Salaries

    How are the coaching salaries in Kentucky? I think things are starting to get out of hand down here. Not that I'm complaining since I am one . Here's an article talking about Rush and how much he makes compared to others in the state of Georgia. The highest paid coach is at Buford and he'll make $174,000 this year.

    No coach in KY makes over 80,000 without an admin position.

    The actual stipends themselves? I'd be highly shocked if the average in KY is over $8,000 (for a HC). For coordinators? I'd say 4-5K average. Position coaches? 2-3K.

    Thing is, many of them (HC stipends) have been that for the last 20-30 years with no (or little) increase.

    Is that paid by school? Or does that include booster contributions?

    This.

    I don't know of any in the state who are Principal's, and also the head coach. But, I know there are several who are Assistant Principal (HS or MS), Athletic Director, DPP (Central Office position), Guidance Counselor, Transportation Director (C.O. Position), etc., for those wondering.

    School. That's $80,000 with everything factored in (admin job and being the HC). The HC part of it? Back to my original statement; the average for that across the state is probably at $8,000 (and, that's a high end guess).

    Is that what teachers top out at even with advanced degrees?

    It' looks like Simpson at Buford gets a stipend around $80,000 a year.

    Just teaching, with 27 years and a Rank 1 (or 2nd Masters)? MAYBE in Jefferson County and a couple others, but I don't think it's that high off the top of my head. I'd say it's right at 70K, maybe a tad over in JeffCo, though.

    I'd say that average across the state with 27 and that high of a degree is somewhere around 60K +/- a couple grand.

    The Green and Gold machine.

    I've yet to see their facilities in person, but don't they have a couple practice fields that are Turf? Still hold the Football U camps there in the summer?

    Dang, I think the article said the average teaching salary is 57K in Georgia.

    They have the game field and three practice fields with turf. Here's a link to their facilities. It's ridiculous how nice everything is.

    When you factor averaging in teachers in their first year vs. 27, No graduate degree vs. Rank 1 and everything in between; I'd say that's comparable to Kentucky...in the 50's at least.

    Wow............minus the seating capacity of the stadium, there are literally many a Division 1 programs out there that don't have anything like that.

    What's crazy is the head coach went 0-10 his first year at another school and then came home to Buford and has numerous state championships. It's a city school so they'll take anyone out of their district as long as they pay a tuition.
