If you want to apply for Willie Martinez’s old position at the University of Georgia, the job posting number is 20091296.
The UGA athletics department has publicly posted four job openings this week -– one for a groundskeeper (duties include “assist with daily maintenance of playing surface at various athletic facilities, including mowing and irrigation”) and three for assistant football coaches.
Obviously the coaching jobs aren’t going to go to members of the public who learn of them by perusing the postings on the UGA human resources’ Web site. But the jobs are required to be publicly posted nevertheless, and you might get a kick out of the details contained in the postings. . . .
The job summary for Martinez’s former position: “Serve as Football Defensive Coordinator, including recruiting; defensive staff goals, charts, statistics, practice schedules, staff meetings; supervising graduate assistants and student managers; guiding and encouraging students to reach and complete graduation.”
Required education and experience, according to the job posting, include a BA degree (Masters “preferred”) and extensive experience as a defensive coach/coordinator, “preferably in Division I.”
Under the category “physical demands” of the job, there’s this: “Standing for long periods of time.”
The posting says 45 percent of the job holder’s time will be spent on defensive-coordinator duties, 30 percent on recruiting, 20 percent on supervising graduate assistants and student managers and 5 percent on other duties assigned by the head coach.
Salary ranges for the three coaching jobs were not specified.
The jobs were posted Tuesday. According to the UGA human resources Website, posted jobs are open for a minimum of five business days before being filled.
