    Seymour, IN: High School Head Coaching Opening and Multiple Teaching Positions

    Anyone interest in the head coaching position should apply through the link below. The athletic director is looking over application as they arrive, so apply soon if interested.

    You can also contact the athletic director Kirk Mann’s for additional inquiries, but it is expected that a formal application be submitted through the above website first.

    The athletic director and school corporation has invested more money and energy into the wrestling program recently. This includes offering a stipend for a wrestling youth coordinator and they have said we will likely be adding a second paid assistant coaching position for next season. Both of those moves will ensure the head coach has more support for his program. The assistant athletic director was a former wrestling coach for the school, which should help a lot in making sure the wrestling programs' needs are properly understood and addressed. Our high school is often looking for an additional assistant football coach too, which could provide a helpful in with many of our gridiron athletes, if you are willing to help with another sport.

    The school and community is looking for an enthusiastic coach who can develop quality student athletes and continue the entire program's development. There is plenty of untapped potential throughout the large student body of just over 1,000 students, and many just need some encouragement from the right coach to get them out. Especially, among the fall sport athletes, many of whom have not participated in winter sports in recent years. There is also a great upside in the larger number at the middle school level, if the right coach is in place to convince more of them to continue to stick with the sport at the high school level.

    Seymour High School in Seymour, Indiana has posted an opening for a new Head Wrestling Coach. The city of Seymour is located one hour south of Indianapolis, IN, one hour north of Louisville, KY, and 1.5 hours west of Cincinnati, OH. Making it an ideal location for teaching, coaching, and living in a mid-size town, while still being able to easily visit several larger cities nearby.

    Currently Seymour Community Schools has or is expecting several openings in multiple different teaching positions. Plus, due to the increase in our school population in the last several years we are expecting to open a few new positions throughout the corporation. The link to our current teaching positions are posted below, but I know of a few more that will for sure open within the next two months as some teachers transfer positions.

    In the last several years we have established a successful elementary K-5 youth league that competes against each other, as well as a youth travel team to compete against other nearby communities. Our middle school coaching staff has helped produce successful teams/wrestlers the last few seasons, several of which are coming into HS soon. Next year our high school will have an experienced upperclassman group spread up and down the weights, as well as some returning varsity underclassmen. The team has had some success with our female athletes, some of whom have placed well in recent years at the Coaches Association State Finals. Currently the program has two experienced high school assistant coaches available that can stay on to help develop the team. We also have several alumni volunteers including myself, who are willing to lend a hand in supporting the program. In recent years we have also created a solid off season program including an organized lifting and USA Wrestling program which is attended by several wrestlers. One of our alumni also runs a Judo academy which has been attended by team members in the past, as well.

    The school has a wrestling room that includes two full mats worth of surface area and will be adding a large weight room next to it (the school’s second full weight room) in the next two years. We currently own four flex-roll mats at the high school that are used for practice and events, plus two additional ones at the middle school too. To top it off we have the largest seating capacity gym in the nation, a full secondary gym, and in the next two years will be building a larger indoor muti-surface complex, making the school ideal to host in-season or off-season events.

    Also, please contact me at for any additional information. I was a former wrestler, have coached at all levels of the program, I am the program's historian, and I am more than willing to answer any questions honestly, and/or help you in getting things set up if hired. I also work in Seymour at the middle school, so I am a direct link to helping with the student athletes at that level.
