In 2022, the average college football salary for a Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) head coach was about $3.6 million.
That number is slightly inflated because of how much top-end coaches are paid. The median salary of all 131 FBS head coaches was $3 million.
In 2022, the salary list showed some pretty wild variance. The highest-paid college football coaches, like Nick Saban and Kirby Smart, now make at least $10 million per year.
Meanwhile, the least-paid coaches on the list – Bowling Green head coach Scot Loeffler and UL-Monroe head coach Terry Bowden – both had a compensation package of about $600,000.
College football head coaches at the FCS, Division II, or Division III level are often paid very middle-class salaries.
