So much prestige is attached to being the head coach of a major college football program that people often forget that the process of applying for those positions requires the same motions and red tape as any other job.
Thus, it’s not a surprise to see the University of Wisconsin post its head coaching gig to its HR website like any other UW job vacancy. But that doesn’t make it any less entertaining for fans to see.
One ambitious redditor even went so far as to submit an application. In response, he got the following rote (and likely automatically generated) email.
So if you’re in the market for a career change and have all the qualifications listed, put your name in to be the Badgers’ new football coach. Sadly, it’s unlikely that Wisconsin administrators will count dynasty mode in “NCAA ’13” toward their “minimum of 5 years of successful collegiate football coaching experience.”
