Job Postings Overview

Last month, we wrote about how May set records for most jobs posted in a month’s time so far this year. Well, June one-upped May and shattered every statistical category we track. June recorded the most job openings posted in one month, including setting the bar in both the coaching and administrative job categories. Let’s dive into the numbers.

3,734 jobs in collegiate athletics were posted this month:

  • 2,285  in coaching
  • 1,449 in administration


From here, we’ll break down which sports and admin categories had the most openings in the month of June.
