    Coaches at the college and university level may be required to have a bachelor's degree, although in some cases coaches may only be required to have coaching certification and experience playing the sport they are coaching.
    Most sport organizations in India have a formal screening process for coaches. Typically, the preferred qualification is coaching certification combined with a bachelor's degree in physical education, exercise science or Kinesiology.

    No the coaches are not necessary themselves be an Olympian or a medal winner.
    Salary of coaches is in lakhs or even in crores. The salary depends upon the type of coach, coach previous status record etc
