    Females as Assistant Coaches - yay or nay?

    Dartmouth has made it official with the addition of a woman as an offensive QC coach, making her the first such coach in D-I football. She cannot be on the field, however.

    Tim Murphy Retirement Watch: now ongoing ... so that Harvard football will move toward relevance again.

    In the meantime, I will cheer for Stony Brook and ETSU besides the Crimson.

    So why isnt she allowed on the field?

    I read that she can't be on the field- but why not? Is it a numbers thing?

    I coached with females in basketball and softball. Some were very good. Some were worthless. Kind of like some males that I coached with. If she can coach I'm fine with it.

    She cannot be in games due to NCAA regulations, but she is allowed during the team's practices.

    What is the reg for? Certainly not just because she is a woman?

    I'm guessing it has to do with her being a quality control coach.

    If you can do the job, I do not care. I hate it when people get jobs, just cause they check "the right boxes" and not based off of meritocracy.

    Our quality control coach is down on the field. Could be a numbers thing.

    Limited on number of coaches on the sideline at one time?...that could be.

    I know that we have plenty of times where people who are connected to the football program or who donate over a certain amount can get sideline passes (and I'm sure that's not unique to us...probably just about everyone does that), so it can't be a "no unqualified people on the sideline" kind of rule.

    I have no problem whatsoever with a female coach. If she knows her stuff and the players listen to her...go for it.
