Everyone is perfectly fine with being average!
Coach (Current Employee) – Athletic Department – June 28, 2016
Athletic department is severly under funded, under staffed and facilities are a joke! This is a place where they will always want you to do ALOT with so little. All sports head coaches must fundraise several thousand dollars each year just so his/her team can get through the year. Also, assistant coaches and GA positions are few and far between- AD and President do not believe they are necessary. But, coaches must spend several extra hours per week monitoring study hall so their students can achieve a "3.0" so department heads look good. Student athlete enrollment/advising is a joke- No classes are held for athletes who have practice at specific times... Goodluck having a practice with all of your team members present! Trying to get transfers from junior college? Goodluck! Hardly anything transfers!
Community doesnt support the university at all! Without two large foundations (McMahon/McCasland) the university wouldnt have anything new. Fan support is minimal compared to other universities home contests and student support/on campus support is non existent. There is no campus life nor is there much fun in town for students.
Athletic department is handcuffed and it is quickly realized by hard working and talented coaches who leave as quickly as possible. Do not get sucked in- they dont give you the resources to win- you'll be here forever if you arent careful!!
