Hey all,
We are now free to advertise our Asst. coaches position for a search for hiring to coach for the 2006-07 season.

There are two positions advertised:
1.) Assistant Director of Forensics--This position is for the academic year and involves teaching sections of Exposition and Argumentation Class.

This is the position that Breanna Forni holds this season, but we anticipate her heading off to grad school in the fall so the position will be open.

2.) Assistant Coach-Forensics-- This is a NEW position pending funding and is for the first two quarters of the academic year. It is coaching ONLY--not teaching.

Any of the coaching staff from Western would be happy to talk to anyone about the positions at NPTE or NPDA.

Announcements are below or go to the Western Web site (wwu.edu) and search for the positions there as well.
