I am currently studying for USPTA Certification and am 37 (Career change). It depends where and how you approach coaching. There are so many different opportunites

Summer camps
High end resorts
upscale country clubs
parks and recreation
childrens after school clinics
private lessons
high school coaching
et al

All of them can (and most usually) are combined. My local club pro isn't in the highest end club in town, but does a combination of Head pro, private lessons and clinics (at the club) and a summer camp (through the parks and recreation) and cleared 'over 75,000' last year.

Not bad considering you're out hitting the ball all day.
