Let's face it, most people who post on the Coaching Openings thread don't care about what's going on in DIII, and it's relatively rare that the DI movement trickles down to DIII. I propose that those who do care secede and create our own thread.
Trinity (TX) - head men's and women's everything, OR head XC/head TF
Amherst - head women's XC/TF
Allegheny - sprints and hurdles assistant
Buffalo State - head XC/assistant track
Lake Forest - head XC (part-time position)
Marietta College - assistant position
DePauw - assistant position
Oberlin - distance assistant (part-time)
Johns Hopkins - distance assistant (full time)
SUNY Delhi - head coach
SUNY Brockport - head - has this been listed?
Stevens Tech - should be an announcement soon?
Low-Paying Assistant Positions:
Adrian College (jumps)
Adrian College (sprints/hurdles)
Olivet College (throws - GA position)
Lynchburg (GA position)
UW Oshkosh - Just announced Eamon McKenna as men's XC coach
Clark U (Worcester) - Nate Kraft hired (no T&F program)
I think this is a great idea. A lot has been written on this board about DI coaching salaries, but if anyone has some info on DIII I'm sure many potential candidates would appreciate the inside scoop. Also, any heads up on additional duties that could be/would be included in a DIII position. I know that in some of the job descriptions they are looking for someone to do multiple tasks such as coach/media asst. etc. Thanks in advance!

Any day now, Al Carius from North Central will combust into a cloud of dust and ash. Some would see this as a potential job opening, but nay - only minutes after, he will rise from the ashes as a glorious phoenix to lead NCC for at least 100 more years.
You, sir, have made me laugh insanely hard for it to only be Tuesday. Thank you!

Sure it's easier...try coaching both genders possibly without any other full-time help, recruiting year-round if rolling admissions, recruiting quality AND depth for both genders and all events groups, recruit some more, and some more, and some more, then fundraise, then community service, then order apparel and equipment without it being in the budget, then fundraise, meet with facilities, meet with admissions, go over to residence life, stop by registrar, fill out letter of recommendations, return call to hotel, call rental car company about vans, stop by the bank, meet with injured athlete, check on pool hours, open up the weight room, get laundry out, get ready for practice, practice, return to office, answer emails about all four teams, recruit, recruit, recruit and go home after a 12 hour day. Get up and do it all over six days a week. Mostly, without anyone else to talk to except at practice. Oh, maybe teach a class or two on top of all that or handle "other duties as assigned by Athletic Director"! Might as well make it a 14 hour day.
Fun? Yes. Rewarding? Yes, if 100%, completely selfless. Difficult? As challenging as anything you will ever do if you want to be successful. Coming from someone who has done both D1 and D3: D3 is WAY harder than D1! It's not even close. You'll learn how to do EVERYTHING in college coaching (and much outside more). D3 XC/T&F is the best and worst job in the world all wrapped into one. Look carefully at the situation before you leap. Good luck!
Bethel needs a Head Track and Field Coach...and Equipment Room Supervisor
Sometimes the job listing alone tells you a lot about where your sport stands on the totem pole!
My favorite was a few years ago when there was a Head Men's Lacrosse/Men's and Women's Cross Country Coach position listed at one school.
For the person who asked where to find the listings - ustfccca.org/jobs, ncaamarket.ncaa.org/jobs and higheredjobs.com are the three places I tend to look first.
This sounds exactly like my last position at a DI, not sure that all the hard work only happens at D3. My responsibilities include recruiting coordinator, academics and eligibility, coaching sprints and jumps, strength training, planning travel for indoor and outdoor track, and meet management. Of course this was for both genders and I was only an assistant.
Yes, he left, officially because his wife accepted a new job in New Orleans. Their women's coach, Jenny Breuer left at the same time. Mildly curious if the two departures are related.
They are related, as are the other coaching staff departures. Crap conference, going to the West regional, and the boss.
