College coaching salaries: Who makes what?

This story originally ran in the Sept. 8, 2007 issue of Golfweek

Everybody knows college football coaches make a bundle. Ever wonder what a college golf coach earns? Curious as to how your alma mater pays?

Now you know. Golfweek presents its inaugural list of college golf coaches’ salaries, the most comprehensive such list ever made public.

<!—->

We took the top 100 men’s and women’s teams from last season’s Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings and set out to get as many salaries as possible. Unlike public universities, private schools are not required to release salary information, although some were able to be obtained.

The numbers we list are the most recent information on record (most are from the 2006-07 season) and are base salaries only. Many coaches conduct summer camps, have incentives and bonuses built into their contracts and some even receive money from equipment manufacturers. Those additional monies are not listed here.

Georgia Tech’s Bruce Hepler leads the way on the men’s side with an annual base salary of $164,000.

Martha Richards, recently hired as the coach at Texas, will make $140,000 this season, tops among women’s coaches.
