About the Department​

With more than 140 years of tradition, Gopher Athletics is one of the oldest and most decorated athletics departments in the country. Minnesota was a charter member of the Big Ten Conference – our teams have won more than 200 conference titles to go with 26 national titles. There are more than 600 student-athletes and nearly 300 full-time employees in our athletics department. That community has built Minnesota into a nation’s top-ranked public school with respect to student-athlete academic performance in each of the past four years, a span of time during which the Gophers have won 13 conference team titles and a collection of individual conference and national crowns. Housed in the historic Dinkytown neighborhood on the northern edge of the University campus, Gopher Athletics is succeeding against a backdrop unique in college athletics, nestled at the heart of a bustling, modern metro area. We are proud of our decorated history, but we are prepared to achieve even greater success in the years to come. Ski-U-Mah!
 

No rookie coaches wanted!!

and I noted this line in the fine print:
  • Demonstrated success working with and recruiting within the AAU system
and this one:
  • Creates an enthusiastic following and support among donors, fans, faculty/staff, and the general student body.
 

I saw this yesterday and meant to post. I was hoping they would have corrected the mention of the men’s basketball enhancement fund to women’s basketball.
 

This is year 6 for Megan Duffy as a HC, correct?

Edit: who else besides Johnston and Kieger meet the stated criteria?

6 years as a DI head coach seems weird. Why would that be the number unless you already had your person locked up? Definitely eliminates young candidates, eliminates high school or DII, DIII experience in combination with say 4 years of DI success. Or asst for 2 or 3 and to head coach for less than 6 years....eliminated.

And if somebody has 14 years of assistant coaching experience at the DI level why would you hire them? That shows no burning desire to be the boss, be the leader. Just because you put the time in isn't a measure of becoming a successful DI coach.

It's like: I got these people who really want the job badly and if I put these things down as the qualifications then they don't qualify and they'll have to stop bothering me because now I have reason I won't interview them. ie Kelly Roysland, Shannon Bolden and/or a bunch of other similar connected people. It eliminates them but a whole bunch of other possible top candidates too.
For instance, Geno Auriemma or Pat Summitt or coach K could not have applied to be the Gophers head coach for Mr Coyle.

Certainly to me, points to coach being already hired. Otherwise it is lazy and limiting.
 





Like every single other job position, the "requirements" are just there for looks.


Valid driver's license

We could have gone a more honest route like this place in New Zealand?

Something to consider, you want to separate yourself from the rest of the opportunities available
 

Highly competitive Big Ten Conference women's basketball program?

Hopefully one day.
 

Well I guess Robin Fralick is out as she doesn’t meet the quals. Does have her BG program in the MAC championship tomorrow though.
