Anybody who knows of any Social Studies or Driver Ed teaching jobs who need a football coach in the Central Illinois area, hit a brother up.

I believe Warrensburg-Latham has driver's ed open, but I have heard they have started conducting interviews. It might be worth your while though to call today and see if you can apply, as you have head coaching experience.

Are you not certified in PE? I saw that Sullivan has an anticipated PE position posted.
No PE. Which prevents WL too as that job is primarily PE. I've also heard it is filled, just waiting on board approval.

Terrible that you got the rug pulled out from under you like that. I know you thought you had found a home. In your defense there is no way you could see it coming IMO. The district is not on the watch list and actually has a high financial rating from the state. Not that it helps you now.

Situations like this is why it is so hard to attract some coaches to move. You can show them they will make more money, have a better teaching load, in a decent program and they do not want to move. The security of tenure and seniority is just too much to leave behind.

My biggest worry is the optics of it. †Without an explanation- and I always feel like people doubt you when you try to explain things- it seems like I got RIFed for going 0-9 and being terrible. †Reality is, pretty much everyone involved with the job knew that was going to happen. †40 kids on the team and 29 are fr/so, you're going to lose a lot.

The benefit I have is 2010-2016 where I established, what I think, is a pretty good track record. †If this had happened after the first year of being a HC, it could be a really bad direction for a career.

I thought I was in for the long haul here, but that's not going to happen. †We've got 45+ kids from just Sullivan that have said they're playing and our weight room numbers and maxes were up. †With our schedule next year I thought we might get 3-5 wins and maybe qualify. †That said, I don't know that that progress will continue with ANOTHER turnover here.

Terrible news. I've been there a few times in my career but not as an HC. It worked out that a higher seniority teacher left so I was able to stay. You never know how things will shake out in the future. I'm sure something will open up, especially after Spring Break.

To be honest, I probably should have had an inkling this was going to happen with my schedule the way it is, but it really caught me off guard. I can see the money of it, but it still doesn't make it any easier to accept. My job-
1st Hour- Early US History
2- Prep
3- Classroom Driver Ed
4- BTW
5- Service (me and 1 kid take care of all the district's paper, plastic and card board recycling)
6- Early US
7- BTW

What blows, besides having to find another job and potentially move again, is I agreed to do track this spring because they couldn't find anyone else and now I'm stuck coaching a sport I despise being involved with on a daily basis. Track's an OK sport, don't get me wrong, it's just not my thing and I said when I got out at CG I'd never do it again and my enthusiasm for it hasn't changed.

I don't know that it's been treated as a joke, but there is certainly a very vocal group that thinks it should be. If given time, that could be remedied and the job wouldn't be so bad, but with my interest level obviously very low, it just makes it miserable.

Track isn't bad as long as you have kids who really want to be good at their events but if they don't care then it is terrible. Especially in May. The only thing worse is Junior High Track.

I've been in that exact position also with the exact same sport. Track was seen as a CLUB not a SPORT. How I remedied the problem... I made the practices very tough, had very strict rules on the bus, made every kid on the team participate in 4 events (regardless or runner/thrower/jumper). After a few meets a few of the kids decided it wasn't for them and we went on and had a pretty decent season. The next few years the numbers dropped but the mentality of what track is changed and we started having some success.

One tip, if you have an assistant coach, try to schedule your interviews late in the day. That way you get out of babysitting...oops I mean practice.

Can teachers who get RIF'd collect unemployment? If so, for how long?

Regarding Sullivan, this is about as dirty as you can do someone. Have fun getting good candidates in the future. I wouldn't take a job at a district like that unless I was really desperate.

As much as it goes against my personal make up, I've contemplated taking it. It apparently does no good to play by the rules, so...

Well apparently our former Principal is taking over as Supt in Erie and he has been recruiting a certain coach I know who has no intentions of relocating. So I might have some pull or good word to put in.
