    High schools tend to keep elite coaches. Incentives to stay are far beyond what colleges can offer sometimes. Plus if a program is good enough and is makeing enough dough for the school the ADs will try to keep winning coaches around. It also seems that the good high school coaches enjoy coaching the high school kids that still have a lot to learn about the sport.

    Not the same animal at all and I am for one not surprised at all............H.S. coaches are teachers first and do coaching, no matter how successful as a supplement.
    College Coaching is big business
    A lot college football coaches have started coaching HS, but they do not need to make a jump directly to a college head coach. There is oppurtunity to became a college assistant, which can probably pay a decent wage.

    i agree with rshear there aren't a bunch of opportunities. good point about 4 time finalist, 2 time champ branch just getting a head job.

    however, coaching a college team seems like a cool idea for a young high school coach who might not have the rep to get a college job. by the time a high school coach has enough buzz to get a college job the novelty of being a college coach wears of and the reality of what the job entails is a deterrent.
