About the Position

The Beyond Football Coordinator is responsible for creating and overseeing a transformative program focused on the development of student-athletes by providing personal and professional experiences beyond the game of football. The Beyond Football Coordinator will provide a diverse array of programming, seminars, classes and community service opportunities that will help prepare for life beyond the game. The Coordinator will develop and oversee an evolving four or five year curriculum that encompasses multiple areas. The career development program's primary goal is that every student-athlete builds their resume, experience, connections, and interview skills necessary to accept a job upon degree completion. The Coordinator will actively develop relationships with partnering companies and alumni that are seeking interns, job shadowing/opportunities, and connections with qualified student-athletes. The curriculum also encompasses a community engagement program, fostering an understanding of the local and global community through building a culture of volunteerism. In addition, the curriculum will include an on-campus engagement program, connecting our vibrant campus community with student-athletes.

The Beyond Football Coordinator will also partner with the Student-Athlete Success Services Department with regard to department-wide programming and services for student-athletes. This position will also be responsible for partnering with on campus Academic Colleges to provide skilled student-athletes as interns and university ambassadors.
