What Kind of Money do Coaches and GM's Make?

You always hear about coaches and gms being extended but we never get the details on the $$

What do the highest paid coaches and gms make, and how about the lowest paid?

Is there anyway to find this information out?

I'm pretty sure Babcock makes something like $4M/per.

As of 2011, the average salary for an Assistant Coach was around $200K, a Head Coach $850,000 and a GM app $1.5M....

I have a tough time to believe any coach would make less than 500k, and there are coaches out there making over 2 millions. The avg gotta be more than 850k.

I think the lower paid GMs make around 1.5.

Ya I was kinda surprised myself. Hazard to guess those numbers are off by a bit, polled in 09/10, published in 2011, a fair amount of escalation having occurred contemporaneously since then, generous contracts awarded.

In terms of highest paid GM's and coaches, this is where it was a few years ago.

Burke's contract with the Leafs, which supposedly made him the highest paid GM at the time:
Quote:
The contract is believed to be a six-year deal, including the remainder of this year, at roughly $3 million US per season.
Mike Babcock's extension with the Red Wings:
Quote:
The Red Wings have locked up head coach Mike Babcock with a four-year extension that keeps him the highest-paid coach in hockey.
...
Babcock, whose salary is around $2 million, the highest in the league, . . .

Bah. I was wrong on Babcock... Maybe $4M was Holland's. I dunno, that number sticks out to me.
