Coaching Changes

Recommended Posts

As we start January, we already have 42 openings (probably more because a lot of small schools don't get noticed). There are 550 football playing schools in the FHSAA, so already 7.2%.

NFL: 15.6% coaching turnover (5/32)
NCAA:  13.8% coaching turnover (18/130)

I guess I should be happy that it is only 7.2%, but I know that some people say that it is over 100 changes a year, which would put us over  what both the NFL/NCAA have.

Simple question: What is the proper pay for a public high school football coach in the state of Florida (please remember to include their teaching salary)? So if you said 20K, is that just the stipend? If you said 50K, is that stipend only or stipend plus salary?

I know in most counties, coaching pay for any sport is given as a supplement on top of your salary and there’s very little in terms of different supplements for winning - although some counties give a postseason bonus.

I’m in Central Florida so in Orange and Osceola Counties I’m pretty sure a HFC gets a stipend of like $4,500 for the entire year - including summer and Spring ball. Now that’s not to say there aren’t other ways to make more (ie booster clubs or being a head/assistant coach for other sports) but most counties in my area pay that 4000-4500 for the HC and call it a day.

Joe Molina resigned at Cardinal Newman 

Darrick Carroll, who was the interim HC at Miramar while their HC was suspended, is taking over Miami Christian. 

Was just about to post about Molina, shame thought he was going  to continue to improve them.

From the way he spoke in his post on Twitter, it sounded that parents was at least partially the reason he decided to step down.

I read it as well, but it surprises me because he is an alum of Newman. He had to know what kind of parents are in the stands. Unless those people are purposely sabotaging your program, you gotta have tin ears for that kind of negativity when you are running a program. 

Oh well.He references a new baby on the way as well, so I am sure that had a little to do with it.  He made his recommendation, it will be interesting to see if the admin listens. Newman has got to be feeling pressure (Oxbridge, King's Academy, Benjamin) are all within a 15 minute drive. You can't go back to being a non-playoff program.

McArthur HC Pierre Senatus has been hired as the DL coach at Florida Memorial University (NAIA). 

On a similar note, Benedick Hyppolite, formerly of Carol City, has accepted a GA position with the Canes. He spent this past season with FMU helping them get ready for its first slate of games in 2020. 

Little old news but IMG's HC took the TE position at Indiana.

This topic really peaks my interest. I am wondering the following:

*Who is the highest paid High School Head Football Coach in the state?

*In the public schools does a football coach also have to be a teacher?

*In private schools are there football coaches that are not also teachers?

*Are many assistant football coaches not paid at all?

Curious to see some of the answers.

:unsure:

    • Proseteye, I was around when OTC was playing those teams, these new OTC teams are not on that level. Don't get me wrong they are good, but they just aren't the same.  In 2005, OTC struggled with Union County (twice) (Union was good then with CJ Spiller) and Pahokee on their way to a 14-0 season. In 2006, OTC goes 13-1 with a loss in the state championship to Pahokee. In 2007, Coach Bell is gone, schedule is upgraded, and OTC struggles to 7-5 including two losses to Newberry and a loss to Union County.  In 2008, OTC goes 12-2 with a loss against Mainland and Pahokee (again). In 2009, OTC goes 9-3 with loses against Bolles, Tampa Catholic, and Gainesville. in 2010, OTC goes 14-0 beats some impressive teams along the way including a Derrick Henry led Yulee team, Bolles, and University School (when University School was doing it's thing). in 2011, OTC goes 7-5 including losing to some local schools (Vanguard, North Marion, Gainesville).  In 2012, OTC goes 8-5. In 2013, OTC  goes 8-4. In 2014, OTC goes  10-2 against a fairly easy schedule to lose to the developing juggernaut of Trinity Christian. In 2015, OTC goes 4-8 (including a loss to Lake Weir) In 2016, OTC goes 4-5. In 2017, OTC goes 5-3 (misses playoffs). In 2018, OTC goes 5-5 (misses playoffs). In 2019, OTC goes 8-4 with an impressive home playoff win against Trinity Christian (Jax). So why go through the last few years, OTC's successes are a long time ago of when they were a dominant beast.  Vanguard: 2004: 2-7 2005: 5-5 2006: 5-5 2007: 2-8 2008: 0-10 2009: 6-6 2010: 10-3 2011: 7-4 2012: 6-6 2013: 5-5 2014: 4-6 2015: 9-3 2016: 10-2 2017: 11-1 2018: 13-1 2019: 9-3 I think partially what has happened is that Vanguard has stabilized it's football program. Notice the worse years of Vanguard coincide with the best years of OTC. There was a reason that OTC was called the Marion County All-Stars for a while. As long as Vanguard continues to have a solid program, OTC won't get the 1 or 2 additional star players they need to make them a state finalist. They will continue to be good, but not able to overcome some of the recruiting powerhouses. Additionally, if you go back to the years of 2B, it was made up of a lot of the larger 1A schools today. You weren't playing Trinity Christian, Pensacola Catholic, Florida High, Chaminade-Madonna to win the state, the competition was easier. It is telling that since they did away with 2B that Trinity has struggled with consistency.
    • Maybe you were not around when the Celtics were able to take on anybody and either defeat them or compete with them. Teams like TCA, Bolles, Jesuit, Gainesville, Vanguard, Pahokee, IMG, East Lake, Palmetto, Madison, University, Booker, and Mainland. All good teams and most of them in higher classifications. So, going up against Chaminade would not be something that is uncharacteristic of the Celtics. I'm really disappointed in Coach Thomas's decision to leave Trinity just when the team was getting ready to make some real noise. He already had the players at Trinity.
    • If you look at Marion County, they have a different situation where all team sports are paid the same as football coaches (except soccer and volleyball). The number has been $5,000 since 2007 and I willing to bet the reason why the basketball coach and the football coach are equal has to do with the work the Vanguard Basketball Coach Haley did in creating a program and pushing for higher pay. 
    • Local Control and Local Decisions (both in Georgia and Florida). It is a hard sell to both school boards and unions to pay a teacher less than 40K and then turn around a pay a football coach 65K for being a "coach," especially when principals and schools are graded not on how good a football program is, but whether the school is an A, B, C, D, or F. Florida as a whole does not support extracurriculars because the people living in the communities haven't been there long. We are a transient state. All the counties that we listed as top pay (Okaloose, Bay, Walton) are panhandle counties. Counties where people have lived in them forever. Where grandma's grandma lived. As a whole, I wonder what percentage of coaches take leadership roles in their local union and push for higher supplements (even if it was incremental of $100 a year). A lot of the unions seem to be led by elementary school teachers who have little experience with the value/importance of coaches.  As for gate... Let's think costs first... 1) Referees: $65 x 5 = $325 per game plus travel stipends 2) Security: $20 x 3 hours x 5 officers = $300 per game 3) Ticket Takers: $25 per game per individual (maybe 6 people): $150 per game 4) Line the Field: $100-200 in supplies per game _____________________________________  $875 per game (and this is a VERY conservative number).  Start adding in: New Jerseys/Pants (once every 2 years) ($140 for a set?) x 80 players Helmets Refurbished every year and replaced every XX years. Practice Gear Balls Pre-Game Meals HUDL Account Coach Polos/Outfits Practice Equipment (tackling dummies, blocking sledds, chutes).  I wish school districts would understand that if you want these boys and girls to representatives of your community than you should pay for them to be just that. Basic equipment and costs should be covered by the school districts. Teams should have to fund raise just in hopes having enough money to travel to a game or hire referees or get jerseys. 
    • It's better because how is trinty Catholic ever going to beat chamme madonna. Union county not beating Madison. But Andrew Thomas is probably going to get some players to try.
