Next up in BusinessofCollegeSports.com’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.
