Sheffield Sabres look to expand on established coaching staff

The University of Sheffield Sabres are seeking excellent individuals to build on their experienced coaching staff as they set out to attack a hugely competitive BUCS Division 1A North Western for the 2017/18 campaign. Coaches are sought at all positions as the current staff will be able to move around for the right individual.

Training takes place with a classroom and field session on Tuesday nights, and a field session on Sundays outside of game weeks. There is also the possibility of extra activities (such as sled sessions, walkthroughs etc) to take place on a Thursday evening.


As a club, the Sabres have competed in the upper half of university football for most of their 18 year history. With several trips to the playoffs, and a Challenge Trophy win in 2012, the club is looking to make a return to the Premiership since relegation in 2015. Off the field the club has a long tradition of community and charity projects, raising money for a number of causes over the years.

Applicants are expected to hold, or be in the process of acquiring their BAFCA level 1 coaching qualification. Experience in the sport of American Football is required, as is a thirst for increasing tactical knowledge and coaching ability.

Roles are voluntary, although the team will help out by covering registration fees, and help where possible.

Interested applicants should contact head coach Adam Lilley at with a coaching CV in order to be considered for a role at the club.
