Yesterday afternoon our athletic director asked me to be the assistant soccer coach this year. He said my duties would be minimal, which is good since I know very little about soccer. He also said that I could come to practices when I wanted, knowing that the games are already on my calendar (barring anything more urgent coming along).
He tried to tell me the perks of the position (sitting on the bench with the team, traveling with the team, etc.) and I reminded him that I did all of that last year. He said this was all the more reason to take the post.
I told him I would think about it and he then began introducing me as the assistant coach (he's a bit of trouble maker, but a lot of fun).
Two of the senior players, one junior player and two freshmen players seem to think it's a good idea, as do the parents.
The jury's still out on this one, but I expect I will accept.
