That would be a fun job, as long as you don't want to actually coach and are not going to have any expectations of the athletes. Those kids are not interested in being held accountable, working hard or having any expectations. Be very careful of what you say at all times, or you may find your words twisted and posted on social media. And obviously the Administration there isn't going to have your back. They will fire you in a second without evidence to save face. The kids have the power. If you go there thinking otherwise, you and your reputation will be out the door. Sadly, not unlike a lot of other athletes in other programs these days. Good luck!
I agree with you, but let's not overlook the fact that among other things, a coach is responsible for team culture. That means that your team will reflect the type of kid you bring in.
What about when your admin tells you that you need to accept anything with a pulse that identifies as a woman for Title IX fodder?
