Interesting that they are not asking for anything except a 4 year degree. No coaching courses.

Going back to that college (can't remember the name) that wanted quite a bit of certification for a volunteer position.

A big D1 school just askes that you have a degree but the smaller, less known school asks for much more. Interesting.

Maybe they aren't asking for more because no one wants to coach at Oklahoma, and they are dealing with a much smaller population base and limited job opportunities than the other school which I think was in a major metropolitan area.

It is my understanding that Chris Huffins will be working with the pole vaulters at Oklahoma during the 2012-2013 season. Please correct me if I am wrong......

You are correct but they are looking to take on a volunteer vault coach also.

Norman is a suburb of OKC and the metro area has a pop of like 1.2M people.

It's not that it's a small population, it's that OK sucks. :P

Isn't that the reason Texas doesn't fall into the Gulf of Mexico? You should thank them often.
