Perfect job for one of our esteemed memebers

I haven't seen this talked about yet, so I thought I'd post it. Wouldn't it be great if one of our own secured this job. At least then somebody could give an authoritative interpretation here for at least one level of play. Anybody interested?

I knew Barb Jacobs was retiring, I just wasn't aware her job was "officially" posted.

I could handle most of the requirements, except for possibly this one:

- Ability to relate effectively with officials and coaches on a national level (essential).

That would take a special person just to do that.

The above would seem to be a big drawback to many qualified individuals (I'm not implying that the requirement rules out all qulaified candidates)
