A bit of a quiet week overall, no doubt helped by many schools having Spring Break. I applied for a Division I head job in the south and one out west. The latter is a decided long shot. Hell, maybe both of them are, but what the heck. I also applied for a Division I assistant job and a Division III head position, both on the middle of the country.

Got rejection emails for assistant jobs at Towson, which I didn’t think I had much chance for, plus for Bradley and UW-Milwaukee, both of which I thought I might have a shot at. Also found out the Sienna Heights NAIA men’s & women’s job has been filled, as has the assistant job at Nebraska-Omaha, and at Central Michigan.

I very nearly applied for a head coaching job at a university in Canada. I’d have an issue with eligibility, though, and there looks to be a teaching requirement as well for which my qualifications seemed lacking. They pay made it tempting, though.
