In 2004, a Birmingham News survey revealed Daphne coach Glenn Vickery was the highest-paid football coach among the state’s public schools — at $86,180. That’s an increase of 45 percent over the last 11 years for the state’s highest-paid coach. During that same time, the American median household income rose just 14% — from $44,684 in 2004 to $51,915 in 2013, according to U.S. Census Bureau statistics.

According to figures obtained by AL.com, there are now nine high school football coaches in Alabama who make at least $100,000 per year. Conversely, more than 110 public high schools pay their head football coach less than $60,000 per year. Some of the salary figures obtained reflect 2013 numbers, some schools have changed coaches since the figures were obtained, and some schools declined to provide information requested.
