My understanding by looking at different school district websites is that their Supplemental income through coaching is about $4,000 for what I gues is close to 1500 hours in a calendar year dedicated to their job. Do they make additional income through other venues related to football like advertisement & camps?I undestand the love of the game, but I'm assuming many coaches have families and children and not having the coaches bug in my blood looking from the outside it seems like quite a sacrifice for the $4,000 they get. I just assumed it was much more than that.

Because what coaches get for the time they put it, can be classified as sweat shop wages, yet those coaches never complain one bit. And for the numerous assistant coaches out there, the financial compensation is exponentially less than that of a head coach and they are there as much as the head coach. There is no way a head or assistant coach in AZ can make a living coaching football (maybe a private school can hire a coach without him being a teacher and make a living, but I doubt it.) And then you factor in all the drama a coach has to deal with. Administration, parents, the struggles of high schoolers and their fragile egos, inept athletic associations (AIA), etc., what person in their right mind would want to add all of to their regular life??? A very special person, that cares about his team, players and the game. These men are dedicated to teaching the great game that football is, because it parallels life. It's not a financially gratifying position, but the emotional and self gratification one gets is immeasurable.

Certain private schools pay their coaches (who do not teach any academic classes other than ones related to their sport) more money (for 9 months of work) than a master’s degree/30+ year coach/teacher at a public school. Correct, that’s private school and that’s what makes them special. Hope all those state championships are making those “superior” schools worth the tuition and sheltered care. Would hate to wonder how all that works after $500,000.00 of coaching salaries and benefits spent with no State Championship at the end.

what said was considering the head coach, 8 assistant coaches (not teachers) for the programs with benefits. If you still can’t figure it out, don’t worry about it. I will say at least these schools, with how small they actually are in student body size, compete with big dogs. There are several private schools with similar size in student body that compete 2-3 divisions down and just enjoy being superior with their monopoly of success playing public schools of the SAME attendance. But that’s ok because like you were poking at, they don’t make the Much more than their public school counterparts.

With that being stated, here's my two cents: The existance of coaches, especially FOOTBALL coaches, in todays society is neccessary. The need for discipline, work ethic, and 'reality' is imperative. The world of education has helped to create a society that looks for short cuts and excuses. On the gridiron, there is no place for "accomodations", short cuts, 504 plans, etc. There is adversity, pressure, challenge, and teamwork. Many of these attributes have been lessened, diminished, or frowned upon these days. The sport of football provides the opportunity to learn to work within such things. In order for that to occur, a program must be facilitated by a COACH. For me, I relish the opportunity to be a part of such an experience. Its not always easy. Thats the point. The sport of football serves as a way to impart discipline, work ethic, and dedication. The 'reward' for one's hard work and dedication is not immediately experienced. Too many kids today seek instant gratification. Football helps teach that rewards are earned, and not right away. Again, such things are facilitated by a program and a COACH (and staff). In addition, such attributes as football knowledge, building relationsips occur as well. Understand, within any group there are those that understand the charge and flourish (not based on 'wins') and those that dont "get it". Every entity has a few 'bad apples'. But for the most part, those that coach football understand that it is a vocation just as much as a profession. Finally, there is also that aspect of the job that is pretty cool ... Friday nights. I have friends that make a very good living ($$$), but I would wager that they would love to be on the sidelines on Friday nights....
