Soledad O’Brien’s weekly TV show called “Matter Of Fact” did an interview with Maryland coach Brenda Frese...

Logic me this.

"One reason women say they are opting out of coaching jobs is the pay gap . . . ."

Then, the video claims that the median women's coaching salary is $1,172,400 per year.

So women are fleeing the profession because they can make more than this doing something else? Bull!

How can that be the median coaching salary? Among whom? FF coaches? Certainly not all of Div I. http://sportsinfo.pro/WBBSurvey2017.html

And if you take the real D-I salary and figure out the hourly rate, female coaches who actually obtained a decent education can probably make as much money doing other things.

One thing the salary -- whatever it might be -- doesn't take into account is the demands of the job. Being a head coach of a P5 program with a good salary is far from a 9-5 occupation.

Another missing factor is the low-paid, long-hour apprenticeship required to get a head job. Of course, every profession requires years of climbing the ladder, but coaching is a demanding job with a sometimes brutal schedule.
