dc.description.abstract I examine the wage gap between male and female coaches in Women's NCAA Division 1 Basketball. Using coach, team, institution, and state level data, I test to uncover the portion of the wage disparity that can be attributed to labor market discrimination. My results indicate that female coaches receive fewer returns to their endowments than males receive, inferring that women should be earning higher salaries. A large portion of the wage differential is attributed to unexplained factors, which indicates evidence for potential labor market discrimination.
