Confirmed: Ken Karcher out
Well, it’s enough confirmation for me, anyway. Eagle-eyed Eagle Totem reader “Carl Lumberg” noticed that EMU opened a new job posting today: “Assistant Head Coach (Men’s Football)“. Although the posting doesn’t identify the specific position beyond that, it does specify that “[s]upervision is received from the Head Coach” and that “[f]unctional supervision may be exercised over assistant coaches and administrative supervision may be exercised over student support staff”, so that’s pretty clearly a coordinator, and given Ron English’s comments after the last game, I think it’s fair to guess that this is for an offensive coordinator — Ken Karcher’s replacement.
So here’s your chance! If you or anyone you know has a Bachelor’s Degree and “[k]nowledge of sport rules, conference rules, appropriate training techniques, and winning play/contest strategies” for football, plus ideally “[t]hree years previous college coaching experience within the sport” and “[e]xperience in counseling and advising student athletes”, you could be EMU’s next offensive coordinator…but remember, only Ron English is allowed to call for fake field goals, and you’re expected to run out the clock at the end of every first half.
