Tennis Coaches' Salaries
 
The Daily Illini put out a list of what the Illinois Fighting Illini coaches make on salary. I guess I was expecting more but I was rather surprised by men's tennis coach Brad Dancer's salary. Of the 19 paid coaches, he is right smack dab in the middle at number 10 with $97, 850. Women's tennis coach Michelle Dasso was right behind him with 86,000.

Maybe this has been discussed here before but it would be interesting to hear what the other coaches around the country make. I would imagine it would be more than what Dancer and Dasso are making but who knows. I might be surprised.

WAAAAY ridiculously overpaid!
The person who summarized the Germany EColi outbreak and determined the US stance, which affects every single US citizen, makes just that.
Who is more important? YOUR health, or a tennis coach for Ill.

We're comparing sports salaries with sports salaries. Not sure how an EColi Specialist from Germany came into the equation.

Any decent tennis player, 4.5 and above, can coach tennis, a GAME.
Would you trust a college student to determine the course of action of your future?

Underpaid, I think, based on Dancer's experience and his results. The guy was a legitimate pro for a while. I remember him as a notch above a journeyman.

I'm saying underpaid, also because he could easily be a head pro/director at a club and do just as well...maybe better.

Now, I'm guessing there are some perks over and above that salary. Good benefits, state employee pension, expenses, housing, etc. If so, $97K is nice. Plus, he gets to make a few grand per week at summer camp and with lessons. Not a bad gig.

The women's coach....not sure if that is a lot or a little.

Their salaries will be going down, or disappearing entirely. Obama outlined in a speech at U of Michigan early this year his plan to modify the Affordability in Higher Education Act. It will require colleges to keep their tuition cost increases below a set level, or they will lose their federal funding, including aid grants. A number of universities and colleges have already elimininated tennis and other sports that produce negative revenue and create expenses for the schools. More will follow in this course when they start to see their federal grants threatened. Sounds a little heavy handed but I give Obama props for this one, as higher education has simply become unaffordable for too many. The growth of competition from online education will also lead colleges to eliminate money losing programs like the minor sports.

They are very much on the high end, many lower D1 coaches are lucky to make $40K and be considered full-time.
La Tech for instance still does not have a head coach and it has been posted since July, but they have only had it as a part-time gig and pay of maybe $19K, which is a joke for a D1 program.

If the men's coaches at Oregon and Arizona make over $1 that's what I call being over paid.

Satsuma Illini 10-30-2012 07:02 PM

Anyone know who the highest paid D1 tennis coach in America is?

Great point. Maybe Illinois should hire a local 4.5 player to coach their men's tennis team. :confused:

I wonder how much USC's Peter Smith makes. I kinda figured Diaz would be at or near the top.

Of course -

What it does not include is any additional monies from camps they run or attend and IF they get anything from the Nike or adidas......and for that I would bet none other the very very top would get anything.

No, the poster went through their private income tax returns and extracted the figures after all deductions and exemptions were claimed.

Vicious Vik 10-31-2012 11:51 AM

way underpaid most coaches. Except for Michael Center, he should be getting food-stamps for his work.

Doesn't work that way, but I guess you are kidding.
