    Graduate Assistants

    How do these guys become grad assistants? It looks pretty fun.

    More than likely they apply for it like a job. That is how it works at Coe anyway.


    I removed it.

    "Fun" is not the word I'd use.

    Check out this 2004 article from USA Today. If you click on the link in the middle of the story, you can see what a typical day is like.

    Re: Graduate Assistants

    I thought you had to have a college degree, getting your masters, and be chosen by the coach to do the job. Most of the time they are former players that want to become coaches that are grad assts. I think there is a max number of grad assts a team can have. I could be wrong though.

    that actually does sound like fun to me. too bad you have to know somebody, and it would set me back in other career aspirations.

    Re: Graduate Assistants

    My brother is a GA at a D2 school right now. GA's are glorified managers, although they generally get to assist in coaching a position. Lots of work to do and you have to be working toward getting your masters.
    It is applied for like any other job, and obviously, the higher the level of play, the higher the competition for the job.
    The pay is NOT good, I'd imagine anyone making 12k is about tops.
    A Master's Degree is pretty much required to coach at the college level so every college coach goes through this "rite of passage"
    Most GA's at the D1 level have previous experience coaching at the HS level or already have done a GA at a smaller school and are looking to move up.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Graduate Assistants

    after reading the articles and your post wart, im wondering how much it differs at a D1 school. im not saying a lot, but it seems like a school like ISU probably has a staff member doing some of the stuff that these grad assistant examples do.
