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.

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.
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.
