Most teams don't actually release that information, but everything I've seen on the subject online has suggested upper six digits to low seven digits.

Anywhere from $700.000 to $2M+ per year, though the average would be around $850,000-$1M usually on a 3yr term.

Strange. You'd think a coach is equally important, if not more, than any star player on any given team. There should be 8-10 million dollar coaches if if these guys are the bread and butter to winning.

Maybe there should be a coach's union?

Wayne Gretzky made $8 million with the Coyotes for a "personal services contract".

I know Tippett makes roughly $2 million per season as reported by a local Phoenix beat writer several months ago.

I dont think so, its probably who the coach is. Their agents will negotiate on experience and status... Tortorella, Julien, Babcock, Byslma. I would guess that when a coach like Bob Hartley began coaching the Atlanta Thrashers that he was the most paid coach in the league.

Reports said Torterella is making around $2MM a year.

Noel was making $750K in Winnipeg from what I heard.

I believe while base coach contract is not nearly as lucrative as those of most superstar players, coaches have access to bonuses some some marks thru a season, the biggest bonus being obviously the cup win.

And I would not be surprises that thoses bonuses make a base $1M contract jump to $4M or $5M if end goal is atteined.

Tortorella signed a 4 year 8 million dollar contract with the Canucks and was also reported to have a VERY compensated and extensive bonus structure based on their performance.

Any idea why NHL coaches make peanuts compare to NBA,NFL,NCAA( football and basketball)

Could it be because they have almost no impact on the game

I'd say Babcock is the highest paid 1 and that the avg. salary is between 800,000 and 2 million a year.

Vigneault got a raise from his $1.8M salary with Vancouver by the Rangers.

That could be it. The fact that when a team struggles, coaches get replaced much faster than the under performing players, could be another one.

The late MLB manager Earl Weaver was once asked why he got ejected from so many games. The answer was three-fold, but one of those had to do with, "The players can win without me, I can't win without them." A lot of his ejections were because an Oriole would start to argue something with an umpire, and Weaver would run out there and basically fall on the grenade. The player stays in the game, the manager does not.

There's a legendary tirade easily found on Youtube that demonstrates this very thing. A balk was called by the first base umpire, and Eddie Murray (Orioles first baseman) started to argue it. Weaver came charging over, flipped out, got himself ejected, and Murray stayed in the game. It was three hitters into the game, but the Orioles won 9-3 with Murray scoring a run and getting an RBI on a sacrifice fly.

Not sure what Carlyle is getting now.

Babcock for three years, at ~$1.5 million per year, before bonuses (potential to earn as much as $2 million).

Ron Wilson's contract with the Leafs is worth $1.63 million per year x 4 yrs.

Some of the articles made vague references to GM salaries being in the range of $1.5mil. Other than Burke, there was nothing specific.

In looking at candidates for the Sharks position, I ran across articles talking about HC salaries in the NCAA. The top guys, Lucia (UMinn), Eaves (UWisc) and Gwoz (DU), were getting base pay that started between 200k and 250k and could rise above 400k with incentives. The articles stated that the logic behind the salaries was so that NHL teams would not pick them off except for NHL HC positions. I assume from those statements that NHL ACs and AHL HCs make less than those NCAA numbers.
Bumping an old thread. Anyone find anything on the assistant GMs?

Bump...

Currently Babcock is earning $2 million. This is his last season under the current contract.

http://www.freep.com/story/sports/nh...ract/16532367/

Quote:
Discussions center on a new contract for Babcock, who is entering the final year of a deal that will mark his 10th year behind Detroit's bench. The Wings want him back, and owner Mike Ilitch doesn't skimp on salary when he wants a high-profile person in his organization, so it's largely a matter of whether Babcock wants to come back, and how much term he wants, and how much of a raise he wants on the $2 million per year he's making now.

Mike Babcock: "I don't think this will be my last year."

Sadly I think I know who makes the least(my favorite team the Islanders, i would be surprised if they paid Capuano anything over 250k)

Great for Coach K., who doesn't coach college hockey. College basketball makes more money.

If the Leafs could sign Babcock it would be for a LOT of money!

And that would be fine. He's been with the Wings for ten years. Maybe both sides need a fresh start.
