Football: Let the debate begin about salaries for football coaches

May 9, 2010 |  7:44 pm

It's clear the top private high schools have been on a mission this off season finding and paying their new football coaches big salaries.

Take a look at this story showing just what a few of the private schools are paying their coaches.

Private schools like to keep things private, but IRS records helped provide some clues.

Is it right for coaches to be earning more than $100,000 for coaching football and teaching PE when chemistry teachers are making half that? And can public schools keep up with the private schools?

The debate is about to begin.
