Daniel Webster, the Division III program where they posted for a joint men’s and women’s coach to which I applied, has hired. This was a pretty quick turn around, at least from the posting date, which is a little surprising given the men are currently mid-season. I was thinking this wouldn’t be filled until after the season ended. Makes me think maybe they had their person in mind already.

Miami has filled their assistant vacancy. Likewise with Arkansas State and Eastern Michigan. The College of Charleston will be filling their position with a former player, from what I was told.

I applied for one Division I head coach position in the south and one Division II assistant job in the west this past week. I also applied for another assistant job at a school where I previously applied for the head coach vacancy.

On the professional front, I committed to going to the CEV Champions League Final 4 in Berlin. Part of it is just to go to an event I might otherwise not have a chance to see, being hosted by a club I’ve visited a couple times now. There is definitely an eye toward doing some networking as well, though. I expect some of the professional coaches I know to be there. Hopefully I can meet a few more. I went with the VIP ticket to help facilitate that.
