The U.S. women’s national team might have secured equal pay with its men’s counterparts, but that isn’t the case when it comes to coaching the two sides.
U.S. women’s coach Vlatko Andonovski earned 27 percent as much as men’s coach Gregg Berhalter in the year ending last March 31, the Associated Press reported on Monday.
The U.S. Soccer Federation released its tax filing from 2021 on Monday. It said that Andonovski earned $446,495, which included $50,000 in bonuses for the Americans’ third-place finish in the Tokyo Olympics.
In contrast, Berhalter earned $1,641,398, including $300,000 in bonuses during a year in which the Americans won the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup crown.
Berhalter was U.S. Soccer’s highest-paid employee.
In the previous fiscal year, Andonovski made $357,597 and Berhalter $1,291,539, according to AP.
When he was the federation’s sporting director Earnie Stewart earned $799,380, which was just about the same to his $799,699 the prior year. Former men’s general manager Brian McBride made $346,494, a slight increase from $338,417.
Women’s general manager Kate Markgraf earned $500,000 for the second successive year.
Former CEO Will Wilson made $642,348. Wilson’s predecessor, Dan Flynn, was listed at $251,886 as an ambassador and former officer.
U.S. Soccer president Cindy Parlow Cone did not receive a salary. Organization presidents never have, although there has been a movement to have a $125,000 salary.
