Would you like to be the next head coach for the Lee-Davis high school "Confederates" in a state that still has nearly half a dozen NCAA D-1 wrestling teams (where a growing quantity of Texans wrestle in college)? Lee Davis H.S. seeks a head wrestling coach near the former nation's capital city of Richmond, Virginia.

Their accomplished team returns most of a starting lineup that comprised the Capitol District Champions this year. They have an established and winning middle school program along with a highly successful youth wrestling program already in place. They have motivated returning members who are interested in off-season competition, camps, etc. and are looking for an invested coach to take the 6x Regional Team Champion program back to dominating the Central Region and beyond.
The selected candidate would also be able to choose assistants as well as retain those already on staff.
The school anticipates several teaching openings, although it's unknown at this time what subjects they will be in.
Interested persons should please contact:

Lee Davis' local rival Atlee H.S. placed in the Top 3 at the Virginia Group AAA state wrestling tournament in 1999 or so. Meanwhile nearby Hanover H.S. is relatively strong nowadays. As a result, fans, boosters, parents, sponsors and administrators in the Lee Davis circle would back a sufficiently motivated, dedicated and achieving coaching staff... The local economy is strong enough to employ spouses and family members, too. And I've read that the region will be hosting the AAA state tourney before too much longer, but I don't presently have details on that. For more on the area's wrestling scene:
Lee Davis recently had a female on their team. Hopefully Virginia will soon add gals' h.s. wrestling like half a dozen states nationwide already have? Mentioning Texas' uniqueness on that front could give you an additional leg-up when applying to a school that might wish to rise above the local "good ole' boy network" with its hiring decisions... If things don't work out there for you, other opportunities exist throughout the state for you to learn new perspectives that you can later bring back to Texas. And by the way, the Virginia High School League:
is bound to be increasingly noticing the growth of gals' h.s. wrestling. Maybe you could bring the sport to a state that so far only has an offseason "unattached" gals' h.s. state tourney and no sanctioned gals' teams (yet)?
