Apply Now: UMaine MBB Head Coach

Let the search for the University of Maine’s next men’s basketball head coach begin, as the school has officially posted the opening on their jobs website. It may seem a little silly to have a job opening for a Division I coaching position listed alongside listings for cooks and administrative assistance, but UMaine isn’t alone in that regard. Our friends over at have a list of dozens of other coaching positions listed in much the same way as UMaine’s.
Names being discussed for UMaine’s head coaching position include C.B. McGrath, Tom Ostrom, and T.J. Sorrentine while the BDN’s Pete Warner reported that current assistant coach Doug Leichner and Vermont assistant coach Chris Markwood were also considerations.
All we know for now is that UMaine athletic director Karlton Creech will be looking beyond Maine’s borders for potential candidates to fill the job. But that doesn’t mean you can’t apply, maybe even beat out all those mentioned above and turn the Black Bears around next season.
Some of the highlights from the position include:
  • Due to the nature of the position work beyond regular hours (to include evening and weekends) will be necessary
  • This is considered “an exceptional opportunity” which would be argued by many in the college coaching world
  • Only a bacehlor’s degree is required, looks like I still have a chance
  • The job opening will close on April 23rd (1 week) so act fast!
So what do you think about the head coaching position? Planning on applying? Who is your top pick to take over the Black Bears next season? Let us know in the comments below.
