Attending the CEV Champions League Final 4 last weekend was a bit of a bust in terms of developing direct new job-related contacts – at least from an immediate term perspective. There is the potential for longer-term impact, however.
I got a rejection email from San Francisco with regards to their assistant coach vacancy, as well as for the UT Martin head coach position. I should note that in the latter case the rejection email was sent simultaneously to a number of coaches and they didn’t bcc the recipient list, so now we all know who applied and got shot down.
A new contact on LinkedIn actually informed me of a Division II head job in the middle part of the country that has just opened up. The posting hasn’t gone up on any of the boards I follow, so I had to go to the school’s employment section to find the listing. I’ve applied for it, along with another Midwestern position for a program getting ready to be full Division II.
I’ve also seen that a Division II job in the Northeast has also come open, along with another in the upper Midwest. Neither has posted officially at this point. In one case there’s an on-going search for a new Athletic Director, which could slow things down.
I also applied for another Division I assistant job – one at a fairly high level.
