Okay. You may be ready to panic and scream if you saw this: CoachingSearch.com doesn’t do permalinks, so it is in their ticker for today. Naturally Ross Kolodziej played at Wisconsin and spent2012 as a grad assistant at Wisconsin before becoming Pitt’s Assistant S&C Coach (PDF, pg. 35). But, no way. No way could he be made the Strength and Conditioning Coach at ANY 1A school. Not these days. That would be gross incompetence. The job is too important these days. He’s had one year of experience as an assistant. That would be like promoting a young guy after his first year as a position coach to be a coordinator… Oh. No. Per his Pitt bio: “He owns a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Wisconsin and also has a certification in USA weightlifting, level 1.” Okay, maybe “level 1″ is something significant. Surely it means something good: Level 1 Sport Performance Certification Course Description: The purpose of this course is to take all participants through complete technical progressions of the Snatch, Clean & Jerk, and all associated movements including Power Snatch, Power Clean, Power Jerk, Squat variations, and pulling progressions. Participants will gain base line knowledge about the programming of training and technical rules. The course includes theoretical classroom, and practical hands-on portions. Course duration is over one weekend and lasts approximately 13-14 hours with up to 9 hours being practical and 4-5 hours lecture based. It is suitable for Strength & Conditioning /Sports Performance, Health & Fitness and beginning level competitive Weightlifting Coaches alike. Included Materials: Course manual, video and one (1) year USAW membership and certification.     Prerequisites: There are no prerequisites for this course and no level of education or coaching background required. I really, really, really hope this is a bad source. In the mean time I need to hyperventilate into a paper bag for a few minutes.
