Who Is The Highest Paid NFL Coach?

Bill Belichick- New England Patriots

Belichick is not just the highest-paid coach in the NFL, but the highest-paid coach in all of professional sports. In 2017, Forbes estimated Belichick’s salary at $12 million per year. Considering that the Patriots are worth $3.7 billion (as valued by Forbes in September 2018), that means Belichick is paid just 0.3% of the team’s value.

Pete Carroll- Seattle Seahawks

Pete Carroll is the highest paid NFL coach, as of 2019. Carroll is in the final year of a eight-year, $66 million contract extension he signed in 2014. His total compensation for the 2019 season is $13 million.

Jon Gruden- Oakland Raiders

In 2018, the Oakland Raiders hired head coach Jon Gruden to a 10-year, $100 million contract. This made Gruden the highest paid coach in NFL history. In 2019, however, that record was broken by New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, who signed a 5-year extension worth $70 million.

Sean Payton- New Orleans Saints

As of 2019, Sean Payton is the highest paid NFL coach, making $9.8 million a year. Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots is second, making $7.5 million a year. Pete Carroll of the Seattle Seahawks is third, making $7 million a year.

Doug Pederson- Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles’ Doug Pederson is the highest-paid coach in the NFL, with an annual salary of $7.5 million. The Eagles are also one of the most successful teams in the league, with a Super Bowl win in 2018 and five NFC East titles since Pederson took over as head coach in 2016.

Andy Reid- Kansas City Chiefs

Andy Reid is currently the highest paid NFL coach, earning $7.5 million per year with the Kansas City Chiefs. This is actually a decrease from what he was earning with the Philadelphia Eagles, where he made $8 million per year.

Kyle Shanahan- San Francisco 49ers

According to Forbes, Kyle Shanahan is the highest paid NFL coach for the 2020 season. He is set to earn $25 million dollars from the San Francisco 49ers. This is due to the contract extension that he signed in February of 2020. Shanahan is currently in his fourth season with the 49ers.
In 2019, Shanahan led the 49ers to a 13-3 record and an appearance in the Super Bowl. The 49ers lost to the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl, but Shanahan was widely praised for his coaching performance throughout the season.
Shanahan has a career record of 38-26 as an NFL head coach. He has also been an offensive coordinator for the Houston Texans, Washington Redskins, and Atlanta Falcons.

Sean McVay- Los Angeles Rams

According to Spotrac, Sean McVay is the highest paid NFL coach.
As of 2019, Sean McVay’s salary is $10 million per year.
