In the WCHA I would guess the lowest 2nd assistants makes $50,000 or maybe just a tad less.
    Good point & you are probably right, but there are hundreds of people who want these jobs. I was just guessing.

    There are 12 coaches in the league who work for nothing. The unpaid volunteer assistants.

    The 2nd assistants could be as low as $20,000 depending on the school, but that too is a wild guess.

    Russell must've gotten a raise in the past year or two. Last I heard, he was making just under $100k.

    The top coaches throughout the NCAA probably make above or around $200,000, everyone else probably makes $70,000-$130,000.

    I'd guess that the biggest difference between the WCHA and the other conferences is what the top assistants make. Also WCHA schools would have more support staff and people who answer to the hockey coach. Almost certainly WCHA schools would have the largest budgets for everything from travel to hockey sticks.
    Anyone know the range for assistants in the WCHA?

    WOOSH!

    Here's the link: http://www.mndaily.com/2008/12/08/10...largely-admins
    The link within the first sentence takes you to the actual list.

    Here are the highlights:

    Lucia: $241,196
    Tubby Smith: $630,000
    Tim Brewster: $408,000

    Kinda funny, huh? If you went by this info you'd have to think that the U of M values football and basketball more than hockey ... of course, we all know better.
    But how do those salaries compare to others in college basketball, football, and the Big Ten? It's not necessarily that they value those programs more, it's more the market rate for football and basketball coaches. How much money does the football and basketball programs bring in compared to hockey? U of M football is going to start bringing in a lot more money too...

    Toot Cahoon makes a bit over $200K, while Blaise MacDonald makes ~$175K.

    Contrast this to the incoming coach at Brown who will make a paltry ~$85,000. I also remember when Mark Mazzolini left Harvard from Green Bay (USHL), he got a pay raise.

    That might be his salary from Michigan, but he makes a helluva lot more than that from the other aspects of the program. I read something a few years ago where they published what Michigan and Michigan State's coaches made. I remember Red making over $700K, everything all-in, and a few dollars more than then-basketball coach Tommy Amaker.
