Auburn High School‘s new head football coach Adam Winegarden now holds the distinction of being Alabama’s highest paid high school football coach.
According to al.com, Winegarden will earn $123,000 a year — $91,000 base salary as director of football operations and a $32,000 coaching supplement. According to the story, Winegarden will earn more than Thompson High School‘s new head coach Mark Freeman, who was hired in December and will be paid $1,000 more than Hewitt-Trussville‘s Josh Floyd. Freeman earns $121,000, while Floyd makes $120K.
Winegarden comes to Auburn after a 28-8 run at Fairhope, which included a perfect 10-0 regular season in 2014. Fairhope lost in the second round of the Alabama 7A playoffs. He takes over for Tim Carter, who resigned last month.
