For the record I love when football programs embrace the new age of technology in this social media age. Many coaches are tweeting or are on Facebook and apparently some programs are taking their job search to on-line employment search sites.
If you think you have what it takes to be an assistant coach for an FBS level program, then Temple would like to hear from you. But before you apply make sure you have your Career Builder profile and résumé up to date. That’s right, the Temple Owls have put the opening up on Career Builder in hopes of attracting the right candidate.
If you have ever thought you had the ability to help out a college team than this may be your golden ticket. Take a look at the job description;
Provide leadership, organization, and supervision necessary to assist in the management of a Division 1-A Football program. The preferred candidate will possess the ability to motivate and lead student-athletes to both academic and athletic successes, recruit talented student-athletes, assist with administrative functions, and adhere to NCAA and Conference rules and regulations. This is a full-time position with benefits and will report to the Head Football Coach. Perform other duties as assigned.
What is required of you to becoming an assistant coach at the FBS level? Thought you would never ask…
Required Education and Experience:
Bachelor’s degree in related field. Experience in talent scouting and game strategy. An equivalent combination of education and experience may be considered.
Required Skills and Abilities
Experience coaching or understanding of football at the Collegiate level.
Demonstrated ability to motivate and lead student-athletes toward competitive and academic success.
Ability to travel and work evenings and weekends.
Demonstrated ability to work with high school and junior college coaches.
Strong verbal and written communications skills.
Ability to physically demonstrate Football instructions, including running, blocking, and scheming.
Demonstrated understanding and the ability to adhere to NCAA, Conference and Temple University rules and regulations.
Go ahead and apply. I would love to hear how this turns out. Could a legitimate long shot impress Al Golden and company enough to get the gig. Seeing the job offer up on the job search site makes me wonder what is the next step. Will single coaches take to eharmony or Match.com if they desire a relationship? One can only imagine.
