Head Football Coach

Allegheny College, a selective national liberal arts college, invites applications for the position of Head Football Coach.  The position is a full-time/exempt position reporting to the Director of Athletics and Recreation.  A proud member of NCAA Division III and the Presidents’ Athletic Conference, Allegheny sponsors 23 varsity intercollegiate teams in addition to a tremendously strong comprehensive recreational program. 

A Bachelor’s degree is required; however, a Master’s degree is strongly preferred. Candidates are responsible for the administration and management of all aspects of a highly successful and competitive varsity football program. Responsibilities include, but are not limited to, recruit and retain qualified student-athletes, practice and game preparation, athlete development, coaching/mentoring, budget management, travel coordination, staff supervision and other areas of sport administration. Maintaining a working relationship with campus colleagues, alumni, community members, and other constituents is key. The ideal candidate will have previous college playing and coaching experience, preferably at the head coach level, with a strong understanding of the DIII philosophy and its role at a private liberal arts institution. They must also possess strong organizational and interpersonal skills, communicate effectively (verbal and written), have the ability to multi-task and operate within an extremely motivated, team-oriented atmosphere.  Additional responsibilities may also be assigned by the Director of Athletics and Recreation.
