  • Athletic Coach


More than half of the students who enroll at W&J participate in varsity athletics, and many of our student athletes turn this passion into a career. If you are interested in coaching at a school, college, or in your community, W&J can help craft a curriculum to spur you on to success. A keen understanding of your sport of choice is critical, as is knowledge of psychology, sociology and communication. 

W&J alumni have had successful careers as coaches in several different sports, including Joe Philbin '84, offensive coordinator for the 2011 Super Bowl champions, the Green Bay Packers and current head coach of the Miami Dolphins.
