Guy Roux tops annual list of highest-paid coaches

In 2018 it looked like the coach’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (November 26) that Roux is the highest-paid coach in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between October 2019 and October 2020, a nearly $60 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The French coach has an estimated net worth of $275 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Roux Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Colmar Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderoux - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Guy) and a fashion line called “Guy Roux Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Guy fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
