As I mentioned on Monday, I was in Berlin for most of the week, so not overly active in the job hunt process aside from monitoring the postings and announcements. I’ve seen a few new positions posted which may be of interest. Now that I’m back in the swing of things – at least for a a week and a half before heading off to the USA Volleyball HP coaching clinic – I’ll consider today which, if any, I’ll go after.

Among the jobs I’ve applied for, three head coach posts are filled – Coker College men’s team, Western Illinois, and Montana State. Thus far, only the last of the trio contacted me (nice rejection email). That still leaves a whole bunch of jobs I’ve put in for, but I haven’t heard about any of them so far. It interesting how many head coach jobs remain unfilled. Now that school has started back up again for most colleges, I would expect to see a real push to get them sorted out.

On the professional coaching front, I found out an assistant coach I know of in the men’s game in Germany is well connected in the women’s game there as well. He might be able to point me in the direction of prospective job openings, alongside those I may hear about from my other coaching contacts.
