Coaching Vacancies with Cambridge University American Football

The Cambridge University Pythons are currently looking to recruit additional positional and Assistant Coaches and a Defensive Coordinator for the 2018/19 season.

The club is run by a student committee supported by two managers with prior GM experience in BAFANL and BUCS and has an experienced coach serving in the roles of Head Coach/Offensive Coordinator and some assistant coaches but we recognise that to take the programme forward we must increase the number of coaches committed to the team including a dedicated Defensive Coordinator.

Our players vary greatly in experience – in recent seasons ranging from players with experience of NCAA, very strong US high schools, and BAFANL to many more players with no prior kitted playing experience before joining us. Being full-time students at the best university in the world, the one thing all our players do have in common is the ability to learn quickly and proficiently. Our home venue is the award-winning Coldham’s Common at the Abbey Sports Complex (full-size field and Y-shaped goalposts!) with training held at the Grange Road Rugby Stadium.

The Ideal Candidates:

You will be a reliable individual (geographic proximity to Cambridge and availability to commit fully to our 2018/19 season is absolutely essential) with the ability to plan and organise, communicate effectively and work as part of a coaching team.

For the assistant roles we would welcome applicants with prior coaching experience, but this would also be an ideal opportunity for individuals seeking a first coaching role – our existing staff are very welcoming and supportive.

Please note this is an unpaid volunteer role.

To apply or to enquire further please contact Pythons Director of Football Operations Steve Guy: (all enquiries will be treated in the strictest confidence)
