I thought this article was pretty interesting.

Some of the numbers:

The Statesman reviewed the salaries for the 2005-06 school year from schools in Classes 5A and 4A through documents obtained under the Texas Public Information Act. The findings were very similar to a similar study done by The Associated Press in 1996, using records from the 1995-96 school year.

The latest numbers show coaches making an average of $73,804, compared to $42,400 for teachers.
[/i]
A decade ago, the AP survey showed coaches making $54,000 and teachers making $31,000.

? Five coaches earn more than $100,000, topped by the $106,004 salary for Sam Harrell of Ennis High School. The leader in 1995-96 was Stephenville's Art Briles at $82,658.

? The lowest-paid coach is Cornell Gray at Houston Furr. His salary of $42,300 is a tad below the average teacher's salary. The lowest-paid last time was Dallas Wilson's Damon Miller at $34,474.

? There are 27 coaches who earn more than their school's principal.

? Southlake Carroll coach Todd Dodge, whose teams are 63-1 with three state championships and a mythical national title the past four years, ranks 36th among coaches at $90,510.

? Coaches in large school districts such as Austin, El Paso, Houston and Fort Worth are bunched toward the bottom of the pay scale.

? In Houston, the district's highest-paid teacher makes $95,191 ? far more than the $76,913 drawn by the district's top-paid coach, Tom Nolan of Houston Lamar.

Coaches receive a base salary, plus a coaching stipend that ranges from $1,000 to the $35,000 paid to Dodge.

[i]Ennis superintendent Mike Harper said the football program generated $260,000 last year, making Harrell "worth everything we pay him."

I make nothing. [&o] lol I'm just an assistant coach, but I do it because I love the game. I'm sure that's how most coaches feel around here. It's also hard to find a paying coaching job when your only 18. Should look pretty good on my resume anyway.

Not surprised, not at all.

Football is huge down there.

Infact I wouldn't be surprised if the football players got passed just because they are football players.

Most head coaches at a small school in Wisconsin make somewhere around 1,500 to 1,700.

Most HCs in TX are either teachers or athletic directors. The salaries are high. The assistants usually receive a stipend around $5000 depending on experience and success of the program.

You pretty much hit it right on the head. Most HC's are school or district AD's, while most asst. coaches are teachers.

The head coach at Pasadena Dobie, just outside of Houston, was formerly an asst. coach for the Buffalo Bills and at Oklahoma State. He is now Dobie's head football coach and the campus AD.

Are Texas coaches usually teachers? I thought someone was telling me that most are not. They said because of how their stadiums are, the coachesnever have to even see the school.
