Here is what the Guilford County football coaches were making during the last school year(2016-2017) and for the amount of time they put in it is a very tough grind, especially when you hit the last weeks of November and early December and the only thing that keeps you going is that ‘Playoff Drive’, but the coaches don’t get any payoff for the playoffs….They need to give these guys a few more bonus incentives in their contracts….If you win 10 games in the regular season, you get this bonus, for each round you advance in the playoffs you get another increased bonus and if they would get some extra incentives, that would sure be a plus…..There seems to be some preseason pay, but no post season pay or bonuses…..How about a new truck like the coach got in the movie ‘Facing the Giants’, or some meals or gift certificates or something in that regard…..
But here we go with a look at what they(the Guilford County high school football coaches) were making last school year, from Joe Sirera and Spencer Turkin at the News and Record…..CLICK HERE for the full feature from the N&R…..
