I think this might be school district specific.That is either a school-specific or state-specific rule. I’m the head coach of a H.S. team outside of NY and I’m not a teacher.
I went to high school in New York and my head coach was required to be a teacher, but that was a school district policy. Not sure if it was a NYSPHSAA rule or state law.
The town I live in (greater Rochester area) recently changed varsity coaches.
The departed coach wasn't a teacher anywhere and the new coach teaches in a different district.
