College Coach’s Salaries: ACC

Last Updated on June 5, 2014

Next up in’s College Coach’s Salary series is the ACC.  In recent months, the ACC has engaged in a coup of sorts of the Big East’s basketball talent, as Syracuse and Pitt announced that they’ll leave the Big East to join the ACC.

How do ACC coach’s salaries stack up amongst other conferences?

The data used for this analysis was obtained from reports filed by each school with the U.S. Department of Education, as required by Title IX.  These reports are the only public documentation  providing numbers for every school, because private schools are not subject to public records requests, yet have to file their data with the U.S. Department of Education.  The data reported is from the reporting year of July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011.

On average, head coaches of men’s sports in the ACC earned $479,669.17 last year, while women’s sports head coaches earned $139,012.33.  Head coaches of men’s sports earned 3.45 times as much as their women’s sports counterparts.

The highest average head coaching salary for men’s sports teams is unsurprisingly paid by Duke.  Duke’s head men’s basketball coach, Mike Krzyzewski, became the winningest head coach in Division I history earlier this season.  The average head coaching salary for men’s sports at Duke is $738,645.00.

Florida State boasts the highest average women’s sports head and assistant coaching salaries, as well as the highest average men’s sports assistant coaching salary.  Boston College is home to both the lowest average women’s head coaching and assistant coaching salaries.
