This is just sad that El Paso coaches can’t break 90k but two of them and even then not by much. Look at the schools in the Rio Grande Valley
Yeah, we have some good coaching in El Paso and the local teams are improving. However, there is not a good track record for El Paso teams once they leave El Paso county. How do you justify 100k salary if the success is not there. Some of the coaches listed with 100k salaries have had success in the playoffs and some have state championships. Im all for better salaries for our El Paso coaches, but we need to see results as well. El Paso teams need to start winning when it counts (playoffs), when El Paso starts beign well represented in the state playoffs and advancing deep in the tournament year after year, salaries should improve and im all for it.
Also out depends how much money each district has. El Paul's districts may not be able to afford 100k salaries.
Having such a large amount of schools basically thins out coach's salaries. Making a run in the playoffs will not change how much a district has to pay their respective coaches.
With High Salaries comes High Expectations.... Produce or move on. Most El Paso Coaches are not held accountable for their win / loss ratio,
Priorities skewed in today's society. Sorry.
My wife teachers 22 kids a day from 7:30 - 3:15. 180 days. Stays another 2 hours after school with lesson planning or uil coaching events.
Deals with ADHD, Discipline, STAAR Testing Pressures, Faculty Meetings, Parent Meetings, Curriculum Changes, and on and on and on.
Goes home and grades papers and calls parents. makes $40,000 less than a head football coach?! Bull Crap!
I don't want to hear about the other duties. I have seen it in action as I teach and am around it.
If not for teachers like her.........Your idolized "athletes would not be eligible!
Oh yea, she also does not have 8-12 assistants to pawn off other duties!
Sadly, sports is looked upon as having a higher meaning in life by so many.
Let's get real. This is high school. Let's get real and wake up and start prioritizing things for our children.
These few few kids that get the D1 offers did not get them due to coaching. They have the god given talents. You can pay all el paso coaches 200,000 and we still are not going anywhere folks. I hate to break your hearts and dreams.
In yisd they do not teach!
Trust me, I have worked with many and all they care about is their program. The other programs that they are supposedly the athletic coordinator on campus for they could care less. There are no more than a handful that really care and put the time in.
Don't sugar coat it all. I have seen it with my own eyes over 30 years as a teacher. Sorry!
This is not college!
A waste of money. Not pooping on anyone's dreams. But i do feel sorry for the many kids who get led astray into thinking they have big things waiting after there senior year of football.
Theres a million people that can teach, maybe not at a good level and maybe not as good as you or your wife but there are many, many people that could do her job. If theres a shortage they can even hire subs with minimal experience and without teaching degrees.
How many people could lead local football team to the 2nd or 3rd round of the playoffs!? Not many boss. If your wife wants to make 80k lets see her beat Midland Lee and Odessa Permian. Simple as that. Or If she wants to make more then maybe she can get a masters and doctarate and become a principal.
My head coach teaches 2 weights and conditioning classes with 10 kids in each class. He has 6 planning periods where he does squat. The rest of us have real jobs with real responsibility, just the facts.
