Expectations: “A note from the Head Strength Coach” As the Head Strength & Conditioning Coach for Colorado State Football I am committed to the development & experience provided to the interns who participate in our program. Not only is it important to me to help prepare competent strength and conditioning professionals in our field, it is also critical to “pay it forward” for those who took a chance on me as an intern. I want candidates that are passionate about learning what it really takes to be a collegiate strength coach. I want candidates who are disciplined enough to make the most of every moment every day and not let “the grass is greener syndrome” consume them mentally. I want people who aren’t worried about when they will get a GA or an Assistant position, before they’ve mastered what it takes to be an intern. The truth is, this may not be the only internship you do before finding a paid position. If you have the grit, selflessness, and discipline to commit every day to improving as an intern your compensation will go well beyond any monetary value. I want candidates with a burning desire to learn, coach, work long hours, bring energy, passion, and a willingness to be uncomfortable on a daily basis. I want candidates that aren’t worried as much about the school they’re at or the town they’re living in as much as the relationships they get to create. Eligible candidates please send a resume with three professional references to Inquiries must be received by Dec 1 st, 2017 for full consideration. COLORADO STATE UNIVERSITY IS AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY EMPLOYER, WHICH ENCOURAGES APPLICATIONS FROM MINORITY GROUP MEMBERS AND WOMEN.
