Comp change from Tech Lead to Eng Manager?

Is there a downgrade in TC if switching to engineering manager from tech lead or from IC roles?

Iโ€™ve seen cases where ICโ€™s do make more money than their own managers, like itโ€™s not uncommon but not super common. But rule of thumb for me is to not take a salary cut for a role unless the situation is dire (ie recession hits and I really need a job to survive).
