This database contains the names and salaries of South Carolina head football coaches and athletic directors making $50,000 or more a year, as furnished by the school districts by early summer 2016, in response to S.C. Freedom of Information Act requests.
What is in the database listing? - Salaries of high school head football coaches and athletic directors who make more than $50,000 total compensation a year. The total salary amount is shown. Personnel who make less than $50,000 per year are not included.
How is the total salary number determined? - This varies by school district and individual position. Some positions are simply a base salary. Some receive a base salary plus one or more supplements or stipends to make up the total salary. Some are also teachers or administrators and may be paid as such as a base salary. The number of days an employee is expected to work during the school year is also a factor.
Why do we publish this data? School coaching salaries are paid in whole or part through tax dollars and the payrolls are part of the public record.
Search tips: To search by name, type in all or part of a name. (Example: "presley" or "pres" or "elvis".) You can also limit your search by agency using the dropdown menu. Results are returned by salary, descending.
Note that results are returned in 1000-record increments but all records matching your search terms will be available. To reduce the number of results pages, keep your search parameters specific (for example, limit results to certain agencies or, for large agencies, to both agency and salary ranges).
How old is the data and where does it come from? The State obtains the data through S.C. Freedom of Information Act requests. We sent FOIA requests to all school districts in South Carolina in early April and received replies into June.
With a few exceptions where we knew about coaching changes since the end of the 2015-2016 school year, all salaries are from the data existing at the time we received them.
