Coaching jobs: Division I and Division II Coaches and Executives

Collegiate Sports Recruiting

There are numerous recruiting firms that focus on Division I football and basketball, but our team understands the urgency of finding the best-fit coach to lead your Division I, II, III or NAIA Olympic Sports programs. We also specialize in identifying Division II, III and NAIA football and basketball coaches as well as sports jobs for your athletic department positions.

Snodgrass Partners is uniquely qualified to help Athletic Directors identify and vet top coaching talent. Our Sports Recruiting team offers a rare combination of intercollegiate athletics experience and proven talent recruiting success.

Using our proprietary database of top professionals and key influencers, we can complete most searches quickly and with the utmost discretion. Plus, our flexible, flat-fee structure is backed by a one-year guarantee. So if for any reason the coach we help you hire doesn’t work out, we’ll find you an equally qualified replacement for no additional fee.

If you represent a university that seeks a new head coach or athletic department administrator, call us at 1.800.207.1958 and tell us what you are looking for via a confidential email.

Todd Martin, former World #4 and CEO of the ITHF, and Steve Snodgrass.

When former standout professional Todd Martin was hired as Chief Executive Officer of the International Tennis Hall of Fame (ITHF), his role was focused on growing the Hall of Fame and increasing its market presence. To allow him to place more emphasis on the big picture, he and the Board of Directors set out to hire a Chief Operating Officer to manage internal business operations. The ITHF selected Snodgrass Partners to find the perfect match.

Steve Snodgrass was the right person for this job. I needed someone who could understand our organization’s needs, the dynamics within our industry, and assess what skills our COO would need to complement me to the fullest.
