I guess that scuttles conventional wisdom of volunteering or working as a GA to obtain a paid assistant position. Interesting, but possibly brilliant.
Well not really, I think it more so letâ€™s you know where the coaches head is at. It would seem like he didnâ€™t want someone with coaching experience but for what reason who knows. Maybe so he can mold them into what he wants them to be, and also so the incumbent doesnâ€™t come in with their own philosophies and strategies of coaching. If it works for him thatâ€™s great, but itâ€™s definitely not replacing the conventional way.
Oh when someone puts on their bio that they finished in the top 5% at a major marathon, you know theyâ€™re reaching to justify themselves for the job with no experience.
