Rookie Question about Budgeting Topic

Thinking about what i should allocate for my teams Budget and not quite sure what the best strategy is.

How much typically is needed for Player payroll (I would like to target a FA or two for the right price)

How much typically is it going to cost for coaches? 10 M feels like i will struggle to get the top coaches (how important is it to have the better coaches)

Whats the best strategy for scouting? invest evenly in HS/College/international ? or should i focus on just 1 or 2 of them? How much generally should be used for advanced scouting? 

Prospect Payroll? would 10-12 M be enough for this? 

I realize that these are noob questions, but i dont want to make a big budgeting error to screw up the season.

Thanks in advance

No one can answer those specific questions, legitimately, without doing a full evaluation of your team league.

Training is important.    Get high quickly.
Coaches are easy if you've played awhile and don't sweat 73 instead of 76.    Just be comfortable.
I tend to focus on HS or college but not both.    IFA is a wild card.  Expect to spend big prospect money to get a top IFA.
If you're going to chase FA, budget 15-20m more than your current payroll.   Good ones will be expensive.
