Yeah, big move... I am out in Maine at Husson University primarily starting a brand new track and field program. I am also the strength coach. Everything is starting from scratch. I have my work cut out for me. I offically start tomorrow.
You got it! DIII is not going to allow me any upward movement. One of the worst choices in my career was to leave Temple University for the private sector. I was working directly with mens and womens basketball there, and they were winning. I have been trying to get back to a situation like that since I left.
DIII is a very different animal. We have 33 weeks on discretionary time... way too much. The athletes can only be held accountable for their 19 weeks in season.
I know I will have to take a pay cut to move up, but sometimes you have to go backwards to go forwards.
I have been at PLU for four years now. I put in for the jobs at Wyoming, West Virginia, and South Alabama. I haven't heard anything. I was hoping to hear something before track and field started, as I don't want to leave the athletes scrambling for at coach a week into the season. I'll try again in the summer. How do you like Riverside? Is the cost of living tough down there?
Hey Gary. Congrats on the UC Riverside job! That's awesome. I'm still working at Velocity. Just part time at two locations. Limited hours, I might have to look for another part time job. How are things at Riverside so far?
