    Many camps offering residency usually get around 100, 200, or 300 in attendance, and charge somewhere between $250 and $550 per player. 300 Kids at $550 per player is $165,000. Heck, 100 kids at $250 per player is still a $25,000 bonus to the coach (before expenses of course).

    However, the top residency camps charge $650 per player and get in the neighborhood of 2000 in attendance. Quick math... that equals $1.3 Million. Yes, there is big money in camps.

    I heard a rumor that Indiana cancelled their Summer Camps for 2010. Surely this can't be true. With a Yeagley back in charge, I'm sure they'd easily clear the numbers I listed above. Can anyone confirm?

    Thank you. I knew it had to be a crap comment that I heard, but I hadn't searched to confirm. Much appreciated.

    You are on the spot on this one......Frietag at IU had one of the best deals going, the university provided the dorms he footed the food bill and paid about $2K to $3K/wk for the guest coaches to work the camps and be dorm monitors. At one point he had as many as 500+ week. Each out of town camp was $500 to $550/ camper. He made more money from the camp then he made as a head coach at IU. This is why it's very important to have or become a high visibility coach, the camp becomes a destination and recruitment tool for the older age groups. And the person running it gets to double or quadruple their salary. NOT a bad gig

    And some of these camps have waiting list - I know the ND camp quickly fills up

    University did not foot the bill on the dorms (the residence hall people would never go for that and the camp is run independently from the athletic department so athletics wouldn't be in that business either). The cost is passed along directly to the campers in their camp fees. Soccer camps at IU use Briscoe dorm. Summer rate at Briscoe is $12 per bed per night (no A/C). Coaches rooms have A/C units in the windows and that bumps the rate to $18 per bed per night.

    Still - The IU soccer camps are major money as you said. Its how IU has always made sure the Assistants Coaches (especially, the volunteer assistant) made some decent money. I know Porter and Phillips relied on the camps for disturbing large percentage of their annual income.

    I would be interested to see the total average salary in Division 1 soccer without camps.

    I think Bluem at Ohio State does very well outside of camps. Of course after Porters pay raise he should look for his own increase.

    I'm not sure if Porter is the highest paid soccer coach, but his base salary was $350,000 in 2011 ($270,000 for coaching, +$80,000 for promoting UA)

    There is a $200,000 penalty if Porter leaves in the next three years and a $150,000 penalty if he leaves prematurely after that.

    Is there a penalty if he fails to qualify for the Olympics?:eek:

    It will be interesting to see if Portland goes after him. His name was brought up as a potential replacement for John Spencer, though I suspect that happens with almost every opening.

    4. Caleb Porter

    — Much has been made of his 10-year contract with Akron, but the former US Olympic coach couldn't pick a better organization to jump to from the college ranks. The ownership support, the home-field advantage, the new training facility and the presence of his ex-Akron star, Darlington Nagbe, form a package that is difficult to turn down.

    We need a better list for coaches salaries on this site. Akrons's next coach could be looking at a 200,000+ a year salary. How many current college coaches will be throwing their hat in for the UA job?

    I don't think the next coach gets paid $200,000. That was after a national championship. I could be wrong, but I would think that the new coach probably will make closer to $100,000 and if they stick with Embrick maybe less than that since it will be a raise from whatever he is making as assistant.

    If you include the camps that the coaches run, just double what your seeing out there. The camps is where the coaches make their money.

    If my memory's correct, Porter started Akron at $150,000 a year. That was before Cub Cadet Field was remodeled.

    I believe his first contract was somewhere in the 65k-75k range. He renegotiated three times in four years to get to where he was. Not sure Kenny Lolla leaves if they were paying $150,000.

    UA offerred to match Lolla's offer, he turned down because he wanted out of the MAC. http://zipsnation.org/forums//index.php?showtopic=2118&st=0&start=0

    There's a thread somewhere on Zipsnation that quotes Porter's salary. It was mentioned when his first contract was renegotiated. I remember it was over $100k. I don't have the time to search through the threads, but here's a link if you're interested http://zipsnation.org/forums//index.php?act=SF&f=13&st=0&changefilters=1

    I looked up some D1 public univerity salaries in CA:

    Cal Poly SLO - Paul Holocher - $73,524
    UC Davis - Dwayne Shaffer (listed as Lecturer, very weird) - $95,554
    UCI - George Kuntz - $91,151
    CS Northridge - Terry Davila - $90,015
    UC Riverside - Othoniel Gonzalez - $67,396 (also another entry for Nathaniel Gonzalez as head coach - $9,400)
    Sac State - Michael Linenberger - $67,084 + $10,000 listed as special consultant
    CS Fullerton - Bob Ammann - $74,848

    Now for the biggies (make sure you're sitting down for Cal's)
    UCLA - Jorge Salcedo - $136,840
    UCSB - Tim Vom Steeg - $142,500
    Cal - Kevin Grimes - $232,900

    By the way, I looked up a #1 assistant coach and the salary was under $24k.

    Wow, for a state with a higher cost of living, the Big West numbers are low.

    I believe Jared Embick is currently making over $80,000 as an assistant for Akron. Northeast Ohio has a low cost of living.
