College Sports Reporter
The Wall Street Journal is seeking a reporter to cover college athletics. Few topics generate as much reader passion as college sports, and we need someone who can tackle this area from all directions. We want a reporter who can write innovative and counter-intuitive stories about college football and basketball when they are in season, capturing the rising stars and larger-than-life coaches, the absurdity of fandom in big-college sports, and the mega-dollars at stake in the machinations of the top programs. At the same time, we need a reporter who will take on the high-altitude problems that increasingly plague the NCAA: bribery scandals; a culture of sexual violence in some programs; and one-and-done basketball stars whose quick departure for the pros has undercut that sport. A particular area of interest is the NCAA's fading grip on the "amateur" status of players and growing drumbeat for paying college athletes.
