Keele Crusaders begin search for new Head Coach

The University of Keele Crusaders are searching for a new Head Coach to lead them following their most successful season to date.

The new Head Coach will replace outgoing interim Head Coach Nathe Owen, who after consultation with the committee mutually agreed to part ways to allow him to focus his time as Head Coach of the Crewe Railroaders.

The committee would like to issue a public thank you to Coach Owen, who has been with the programme for the entirety of its 5-year existence. We are sure all Crusaders past and present will acknowledge the impact Coach Owen has had during his time with the team and we encourage all of them to join us in wishing him well with the Railroaders this season.

Our new Head Coach will be responsible for the team’s on-field performance and must have the ambition and drive to allow us to build upon our recent 4-3 record, towards challenging for playoff berths in the future.

Main responsibilities will include managing and recruiting positional staff to develop both current and future Crusaders, along with organising our training sessions twice a week, held at Keele University. We are seeking to grow our positional staff, so any application would be strengthened by any other coaches who would join the programme along with the successful candidate.

The Keele Crusaders are proud to boast a very active and engaging team with a supporting committee that strive to not only excel within our division, but develop ourselves further as an integral part of our athletics union.

The successful candidate would be organised, experienced and enthusiastic about taking our programme to the next level.

Applications will close Sunday 20th May 2018, with applicants being invited for interview shortly afterwards. All applications should include a cover letter and a footballing C.V.
