Jon Jost Trades in His Whistle for a Shovel - A message from Jon Jost, former Director of S&C at FSU

Hello Coaches, Friends and Colleagues,

 

Most of you have probably heard that I resigned from my position at Florida State University, and that my wife and I have moved to Costa Rica where we will live on our coffee farm.  I have attached an announcement and some pictures telling a little about our story.  It was very difficult to leave a career of 27 years in college athletics, and the FSU Athletic department that has been my home for the past 14 years and has treated me so well.  I have been incredibly blessed throughout my career to be mentored by, and have worked with some truly remarkable people.  There are far too many to name individually, but I would like to thank each one of you, whom with I have had the pleasure of working and serving student-athletes.  You have made me a better strength coach and enriched me as an individual.

 

I will miss not being part of an athletic department, especially this Saturday!  I will be thinking of you and wish you all good luck as you embark on a new season and academic year.  I will be following the seasons, your success and cheering for the Huskers and Noles from Costa Rica. 

 

Please do not hesitate to contact me if there is something I can help with, or if you visit the beautiful country of Costa Rica.  Please keep in touch, you will always be able to reach me at jjost1@gmail.com

 

God Bless,

Jon Jost

Simply no one better in the profession.  Came into the profession for the right reasons and maintained a sense of integrity not found often in the industry today.  He's a winner, a mentor, friend and a brother.  Go get 'em.
