: The $2000 figure is about correct - some district pay more but nothing close considering how much time they spent. A friend once said his wife calculated that he was making “12 cents an hour” for the time he was spending away from her.
: Most coaches try and augment this through camps and other activities but this truly is a profession of passion not profit.
The $2000 number is an old number. I would guess the median is around $3700 with some districts paying $5000 +. Summer camp fees are harder to get with so many private club basketball teams dominating youth players court time. Additionally, some school districts seek to cap summer income for coaches - a deterrent to running big camps.
