Turnkey has been retained by Rice University to assist Director of Athletics Joe Karlgaard with the search for a new Head Football Coach.
“We will be opening a national search starting this afternoon,” said Karlgaard. “We hope to bring that to a swift conclusion, although I will say that finding the right fit for Rice is the most important thing that we can do at this time. We’ve enlisted the help of Turnkey Search (and) Gene DeFilippo. Gene was a college coach for 10 years and an Athletics Director for 20. He will be assisting us with vetting the candidates in the process.”
The next leader of the Owls will replace David Bailiff, who amassed a record of 57-80 in his 11 seasons at the helm at Rice.
Turnkey has been an industry leader since 1996, with a legacy of more than 1,000 executive search placements. Current and recent Turnkey clients include the University of Alabama, the Atlanta Hawks, CitiGroup, the University of Denver, Louisiana State University, the University of Michigan, the Milwaukee Brewers, the University of Mississippi, Monumental Sports, the University of Nebraska, the Oakland Raiders, Richard Childress Racing, RocNation, Rutgers University, the Tampa Bay Lightning, Temple University, the University of Tennessee, Ticketmaster, Townsquare Media, the United Center, VStar Entertainment Group, and the Washington Nationals.
