    It's the same way with all sports----coaches arent making much money and are in some cases getting their teaching duties added to, not subtracted from. That's why the turnover is like that of a fast food restaurant. Coaches get into it knowing what they are going to make.....but after a while alot of them figure out that they are costing themselves, their families, their futures time and money by staying in it. It is noble to want to help the kids out, but at what expense?

    Jackson will, in my opinion, be hard pressed to do any better than he is now from the classroom standpoint and money. He had no teaching duties at McCracken and made roughly $75K. He was the head grounds keeper. I doubt that he will be making any more money. he will be back where he wants to be in the deep South. He is actually from near Paducah, growing in the Mo. Bootheel.

    I dare say he won't be doing a thing there either, as in nothing all day outside of maybe being in the weight room. Coordinators in that part of the country make in upwards of 12-15K or more as their daily wage goes up in correspondence with the amount of extended days they have.

    I personally am good friends with a guy down that way who is in the weight room all day and makes in the above neighborhood for coaching & Camden County is a step up from his program.

    It's hard to imagine how it is down in GA unless either being there or knowing people that are, but it just is. Not to mention that Camden County is literally on a national level. It's the epitome of "big time."

Seven home games equals $350,000. You have to pay for that stadium and the facilities and equipment, etc, but with those numbers I can see a coach in a program like that making big bucks. What do the head coaches in Cincinnati's GCL programs make?
    I'm pretty sure most tickets are in the $8-$10 range. Many schools change for parking in the school parking lot and get to keep all their profits from concessions. They also have business partners that make annual donations to the program. They also get to keep advertising revenue. It's run like a business, which allows schools to be able to afford those salaries.

    Let's see.. $75,000 is nice but that doesn't compare to what he will be doing or making in Georgia. Harry said it best- if you have not lived it or know somebody who did then you truly have no idea. And you can add to the fact that Camden County is a top tier team so he will be paid well above others. And he will be focused solely on football and winning in his job.

    I don't think it will be Rogers, just a hunch and not based on anything

    The middle school teams are loaded with lineman which has been a weakness of McCracken County.

    The link says $100,000 not 1. You can make it 18 now that Camden is paying Sphire 100+
    I wonder what former South Laurel head coach Jep Irwin now makes at Lassiter, Ga., which is a 6A school in Marietta in Cobb Co.

    I believe their HC stipend was in the $25,000 range.

    I'd like to see some consistency with this program, especially if my nephew ends up playing in high school. I live in Northern Kentucky, but I've been to two of the last three Tilghman-McCracken County games.

    Biggest difference.. Boosters pay in other states and in Kentucky they are not allowed to pay

    Although I've been told some booster groups manage to find ways to sweeten the pot for coaches they want to hire/keep.

    Next year will be the 5th year of the rivalry. All five years of the rivalry have featured a new head coach. Jack Haskins, Mike Rogers, Shawn Jackson, Kurt Barber, and the new McCracken coach.
