: : : : Does anyone know what high schools have head coach vacancies or are there any Varsity coaches looking for an Assistant?

: : : check cif

: : One bit of advice - for many years I believed that coaching HS basketball (varsity) was the ultimate i could achieve in the coaching world. I was wrong. I was recently hired as an assistant varsity coach at a good private school. Its NOT all what i thought it would be.
: : Be careful, sometimes in life, be careful what you wish for, because it might come true.

: Coach- what do you mean about this? Very open ended statement. Would like to hear why it's not what you thought it would be.

Im not saying its all bad, its just different. When you are a Head Coach anywhere, any level, for 30+ years, and you love it, then move to an assistant varsity position, where you assist and dont do things you like doing or have done for a long time, it takes some getting used to. As an assistant coach, part of your job is to make the Head Coach look good. You support the Head Coach and adhere to whatever he/she wants to teach. Im just so used to doing "my own thing" its different following someone elses lead. Thats all Im saying. I may adjust moving forward, or, I may not - LOL. Many friends of mine "assumed" I would be a great assistant varsity coach. I wasnt sure. My point is this, quite often in life, we "assume" taking a higher position/promotion, is good for you. Bit the truth is, sometimes, when you find something you are good at and love it, dont leave it because lifes too short.
