This is eventually going to lead to "AAU" and club teams replacing many school sanctioned sports. There are many parents and people in communities that believe it should be an honor to coach their athletes since they likely coached the kids in youth sports for free, they don't see why it wouldn't be done for little to no money at the higher levels. Unfortunately, it's just the world we live in.Everything is voted on, and there are many supplemental positions besides coaches. Most of them pay less than coaching, but there aren't as many hours involved either.
Decades ago, our coaching pay was too low for the size of our school and the league we were in. A member of our "union" negotiating team told me, "We have such good kids here you should be willing to coach for less."
The year the administration had trouble finding suitable head coach candidates for football, boys basketball, and wrestling the administration decided to increase the pay.
