Ferrum advertises Assistant Coach position- Offensive Coordinator

On January 20th, Ferrum College's Human Resources office posted an opening for full time Assistant Football Coach- Offensive Coordinator. This position will fill the vacancy created when Dave Harper was promoted to Head Coach.
As Harper had been the offensive coordinator since 1999, this will certainly make things interesting going forward. A new coordinator, may mean an entirely different offensive approach. Stay Tuned! Below is the job posting.

  1. Now they shoukd go after a defensive coordinator. They sure need one,

  2. Just one position posted seeking resumes and interest for what seems to be a mirror image of Harper's old coaching position?

    No consideration for seeking candidates for ALL of the assistant coaching positions?

    How can this be viewed as change for the Ferrum program? C'MON MAN.

  3. They should be looking for a defensive coach. Looks like the same old tired coaching with the same results.

  4. It appears that ferrum uses football just to bring in tuition money. You have the recruiters telling students what they want to hear and that is playing time. Every year they bring in new players and most leave. Ferrum had a great oppertunity to change thier culture and start building something special. I agree same coaches same results.

  5. So are you suggesting that Ferrum players are leaving due to lack of playing time? It is an interesting theory. It may well be true, but truthfully, you can only have 11 players on the field at a time, so at any given time the majority of those suited up will be on the sideline. Could it be that all players are promised playing time as long as they produce the results needed to make Ferrum a winner...In other words the best 11 will play.
    Not everyone will play. It is not recreation league ball.
