Tulane: Tulane University is looking for two 2022 Summer Interns who want to learn, coach and represent Tulane University Football. This an UNPAID INTERNSHIP. What you will receive is an education that you will never get sitting in a Masters Class. This is not a setup equipment, mop and stand around and mindlessly clap on every submax set an athlete accomplishes. You will walk away at the end of July a more rounded coach in every facet.
