Over the past few years, we’ve been blessed to see FootballScoop grow leaps and bounds month after month, year after year. In the past 14 days alone, The Scoop page has been viewed over 7 million times and nearly 700,000 people have visited the site.
We have decided to use that reach to do some good for some deserving folks in the coaching profession, because helping good people is what we’re all about.
Checking The Scoop, you probably noticed a new feature we’ve rolled out titled Scoop Him Up. This new feature is an opportunity for us to promote good coaches, and quality people in our great profession that are looking to land on their feet somewhere new.
Over the course of the next several weeks, we’ll continue to highlight high character guys looking to take the next step in their careers – and we’re more than happy to do it.
While our first spotlight was on a graduate assistant yesterday, we’re not limiting the newest FootballScoop feature to any particular role. It may be a graduate assistant whose time has come to find a full-time position somewhere, or it may be an older, more accomplished coach that has found himself looking for the right opportunity.
Our profession can be a strange one, where circumstances may close the door for one guy, while presenting an opportunity to another. The coach that finds himself out of a job is left to rely on a little bit of luck, and the perfect storm of circumstances and timing to hop on board another staff. There are so many candidates vying for a handful of open positions every year, that the sheer numbers game leaves many quality coaches on the outside looking in. It’s a lesson in perspective that just one trip to the AFCA teaches you.
Scoop Him Up is our way of bringing the spotlight to those coaches deserving of some extra recognition. To be considered, please send us a brief note about a high quality / character coach along with a resume or summary of qualifications and references to [email protected] or through any of the other regular ways you all get in touch with us. Due to the surging volume of interest already, candidates with the highest quality of references will receive priority handling.
