The Assistant Women’s Basketball Coach will assist with recruiting, practice organization, scheduling, on-floor coaching skills, pre- and post-season conditioning experience.
I gotta admit, the chance to work with and get style tips from Coach Q is enough to make me submit an application. Let's find out if I'm qualified:
Bachelor’s degree required.
3 years coaching experience with a minimum of 2 years recruiting experience, preferably Division I.
Hmm...I've blogged about the coaching experience for six years and six years of the recruiting experience in Division I, so, check?
Knowledge of NCAA regulations.
Strong organizational, communication and interpersonal skills.
Must be able to use editing equipment...
Depends on the kind of editing you're thinking of. We'll call it Possibly Check for now.
...and have excellent data entry and computer skills.
Worked as a temp in a Princeton area office during summer between sophomore and junior year where I did data entry for accounts receivable department. CHECK!
Recruit skilled basketball players who meet the University’s academic standards; ability to relate to, motivate and communicate with student-athletes.
See if it were me, I would throw academic standards out the window and just dump bags with dollar signs on them on living room tables. So...no check.
Physical Requirements: "Not Applicable"
Have you ever been or are you currently involved in an NCAA-related investigation? If so, please describe.
When I was a senior, I threw a party at 516 Euclid. We had jello shots and Natty Light kegs and we charged $4 (why not $5? I don't know). It was such a huge success that the cops showed up. They didn't arrest us but they told SU and SU put us on some kind of super-probation. We had to do community service at Meals on Wheels.
I'm not entirely sure the NCAA was aware of this, but just in case, this is what they'd probably tell you about.
Final Score: I feel like so long as the NCAA has moved past my crazy party and my inability to relate to student-athletes who meet SU academic standards, I would make a fantastic candidate for the position.
I look forward to hearing from you, Coach Q.
