The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between role ambiguity, role conflict, win-loss record at current position, career win-loss record, school enrollment, total years as a head coach, total years as an assistant coach, and number of sports coached and burnout in men's varsity and junior varsity head high school basketball coaches. The subjects were all male coaches (n=64) from twenty-four counties in southwestern Virginia. The multiple regression analyses indicated that role ambiguity and role conflict did not differentiate a higher level of burnout. The remaining demographic variables were not significant predictors of burnout. Emotional exhaustion and depersonalization were best explained by school enrollment. Personal accomplishment was best explained by total years as a head coach and number of sports coached.
