Position Overview:
The primary role of the individual in this position is to provide administrative and coaching assistance to the head coach. Responsible for promoting the philosophy and objectives of the program within the scope of applicable NCAA, conference, and institutional regulations.


Represent the team, department and university in a positive, professional and ethical manner; be appropriately responsive to community service, marketing, fund-raising, and media requests, as assigned. Exhibit professionalism in a manner, which is consistent with the missions and goals of University, conference, and NCAA.

Assist the head coach in the development of a competitively successful team, which represents
IUPUI positively and responsibly, and provides student-athletes the opportunity for a positive experience and climate in which to achieve their academic, athletic, and personal goals. This includes developing instructional plans for individual student-athletes, student-athletes in various events/positions, and for the entire team; and within these instructional plans, addressing any special needs/issues as identified by the coaching staff.

Organize and effectively manage recruiting efforts, as assigned, of productive student-athletes who have the ability to be academically and athletically successful at IUPUI.

Assist the head coach in providing leadership and instruction in the academic, personal, and athletic development of student-athletes, to include counseling team members in academic, citizenship, sportsmanship and personal matters, as assigned.

Represent the team, department, and university in a positive, professional, and ethical manner. Preform other duties as specified in coach’s employment agreement and as assigned.


Level of Decision Making: While the head coach is the ultimate decision making authority for the sport program, the assistant coach has authority to make decisions over the areas of the program as designated by the head coach (e.g. the assist coach may assess the talent level of prospective student-athletes to determine who should be in the recruiting pool for the sport). The assist coach is often the first to know of a problem a student-athlete may be experiencing and may determine how/when to best approach the head coach. The assistant coach must exercise good judgement in making decisions. The assist coach plays a vital role in team moral and dealing with student-athlete issues. Making bad decisions when evaluating talent and/or developing practice/game plans will result in negative on the field performance by the team. Failure to follow established recruiting policies and procedures would result in NCAA sanctions.


Scope and Impact: Incumbent represents IUPUI on the local, state and national scenes. The incumbent will provide input on potential rules changes that affect both the individual sport and athletics as a whole.

This position is complex in terms of many and varied job duties, therefore, the assist coach must be able to multi-task and work at a high energy level.
