The cost of a head coaching job has been a contentious topic.
But if the latest data from recruiting firm 247Sports is anything to go by, that is no longer the case.
The firm has released a new analysis of the cost of recruiting a head head coach for 2017, and it looks at the salary and benefits offered to the job as well as how the position is promoted.247Sports said that the average salary of a football recruiting job is around $100,000 per year, with bonuses and other perks for high performers, as well.
It has been said that many top recruits, like former Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly, would be willing to pay upwards of $250,000 a year to secure a job.
The latest salary figures for head coaching positions are expected to be released at the end of this week.
