I heard that you have to coach for a few years before becoming an athletic director.Is this true? If not, what do I need to do? I will have my Bachelor's in Business Administration with a concentration in Sports Management. Also, what's the job outlook for this career in the next year or two? Thanks for the help!
I am a student athlete right now at a D 1 college and have always loved sports. I am looking to change my major but don't want to make any hasty decisions but would like a job in the athletic field. I could see myself being an athletic director in a high school or college.
I am earning my bachelors of science in physical education right now and will probably master in administration of some sort afterwards. Should I aim towards becoming an athletic director or principal? I need an explanation as well. Please help.
Looks like to me that there is something wrong with hiring process which is headed by the athletic director. I'm just saying, "There is no reason for a heralded program like Notre Dame to have this much problem finding good coaches and recruiting players. I agree that its tougher but not impossible at Notre Dame.
What is a good Master's degree if I want to become an Athletic Director at the high school or junior college level?
In May of 2007 I obtained my bachleors degree in Exercise, Sport, and Health Education. Right now I am attending graduate school to get my masters degree in the same program.
The problem is that I do not know where to start in order to become an athletic director. I would be able to get a full time job since all my classes are at night. My background in the sporting industry includes working for a sports radio station and also being a manager at Gold's Gym. Does anyone have any ideas on what I should start off with

I really want to have a job related to sports. I would love to be a coach in high school or be an athletic director. What kind of degree will help me get a job like those?

I already interviewed 1 time, they said they would have a 2nd round of interviews the following week and would contact me.
Long story short: My coach is corrupt. I have a coach who is not doing her job, not coming to all practices, coming to practices late, being rude and insulting to people, not communicating, and not giving us their full effort and dedication.
We scheduled a meeting with this coach and discussed all the issues that we had.
This coach then brought up our meeting in front of the entire team as a speech and said that what we did was wrong and that this person felt like they were being attacked, and so on.
My friends and I who have been trying to evoke this change in coaching (talking to athletic director getting parents involved, talking to this coach etc) have been experiencing backlash from the other members.
The problem is, since they are not officers, they don't see all the corruption that we are seeing. And now, they think that we are the bad guys. The fact is, this coach is not doing their job, and they are insulting and even stealing money from our team budget. I want to do all I can to get the change that is needed, but how can we deal with our friends turning against us like this?
I'm a junior in high school and my ideal career plans would be to become an athletic director at a university or college. To me, this is the major that would make the most sense. I'm just a little worried that this major would little my other career options if the opportunities don't present themselves. Also, is this a somewhat possible career choice. It seems like a lot of athletic directors are former coaches/players. So, I guess, what would be your thoughts on this major and the right path to get into the job I would like?
I am a junior in high school and am undecided on what i want to do. I get decent grades, usually A's and B's then at least one C. Math is my weakest for sure. I plan on going to Illinois State University so yeah. What are some good careers that make a good salary that deal with sports? Like athletic director and so on
He did EXACTLY what he was supposed to do when he heard about Sandusky. To the T.
Penn State's guidelines said to report it to the athletic director. Paterno did that.
It's the athletic director who then failed to perform HIS duties.
Why is the legendary coach Joe Paterno being fired?
So im about to get my bachelor's degree in secondary education, and i was thinking about getting a masters in sports admin, but was wondering what kind of jobs i could get with that. i know athletic director, but are there any others? and do any nfl teams hire people with a masters in sports admin?
Please HELP!!! He works as a school administrator (athletic director) and is an ex wrestler with friends in high places, I told the Pepper Pike police and they told me to go to the hospital so that they could document my injuries but refused to document it themselves. I have run out of ideas and I can't sleep at night and have lost my confidence in the law. I feel like a prisoner in my own home for fear that since he has gotten away with hurting me that he may do it again. He told me and I quote "Love hurts...I will come out of this smelling like roses." I have had many difficulties since this awful experience of abuse. What can I DO?
In my opinion, if the new AD is anyone other than former national championship winning coach Phil Fulmer, it will be a HUGE mistake.
I find it curious that Bruce Pearl, the charismatic Tennessee coach who semi-regularly breaks NCAA rules, violated another going into this season and Hamilton (the athletic director) did nothing. Hamilton offered tepid support for Pearl going into this month's tournament. Then, after Tennessee gets crushed in the first round, Pearl is immediately fired.
Do you think Pearl's baggage would not have been too heavy if UT won a couple of games in the NCAAs? To put it another way, if Tennessee made it to the Sweet 16 or Elite 8, would Pearl be coaching the Vols next season?
Joe pa did nothing wrong and did not deserve to be fired. People act like this is all his fault and that he never reported it. And joe pa did report it. He reported it to the athletic director or whoever while it was going on. It's the idiot athletic directors fault. And for those of you saying "he should of reported to the police", I bet none of you would of never did that either. And you have the guy who actually molested the kids and the two others who never reported it, and you look at joe as the bad guy? Come on.
I'm a high school senior and I've always been big on running. I'm currently on the winter track team and haven't been doing so hot this season. My cross country season was pretty good though, my best times. My problem with track is last year I had this coach who worked with us long distance runners and made us from okay, to amazing. He was encouraging and he made our times excellent and he worked so well with us. He trained us our winter and spring seasons last year. Last spring he switched schools (he's a gym teacher) and the new school he worked for was only temporary, so over the summer he had to find a new job and is now a athletic director at our city Boys and Girls Club, which requires him to be there from 1 pm to 8 pm and track practice is 3 to 5 so clearly he couldn't do it, so he didnt apply for the job this year. As a result the school took the football coach and the sprinters coach to work with us. Our training was so off, we've been performing horrible and the football coach (who only shows up to half the meets and 75? the practices) only tells us how embarrassing we are, but he's never watched us run or anything. He literally collects a coaches check and hasn't done one bit of coaching. Oh wait, he tried to make us long distance runners do leg weights and screamed at us because we were going too slow. Little did I know doing weights was a race. Oh yeah and he told us how we should all be this other kid and do his workouts, but he's a sprinter. This football coach also after that confessed that he has never seen track before in his life, then continued on to tell us we were his worse track team. The sprinter coach is just disgusted with us. I'm so grateful that he even works with us, but he's not tolerant by the fact we're long distance runners not sprinters. Our progress is rapidly dropping meet by meet. We want our old coach back and we don't know what to do? We still have spring to go and I already blew scholarships anyway.what should we do? Help?
