Bill Vasko
CEO, XO Coach & MAXX Athletes


My name is Bill Vasko and I am the founder of XO Coach and The Coaching Portfolio Guide. I created these resources to help coaches navigate the job search process.


My experience is unique, having coached at the college level in Division 1, 2, and 3 as both a head coach and assistant coach in three different sports! I have also served as a coach and athletic director at the high school level.


I've hired lots of coaches as an athletic director. I've hired lots of coaches as a head coach. I've sat in on several search committees during my time as a college coach. I've reviewed thousands of resumes and portfolios over the years, and I realized many coaches needed guidance on how to better develop their job application materials.


In 2014, I decided to build The Coaching Portfolio Guide, a resource to assist coaches in building a professional coaching portfolio that would help them land their dream job. Since that time, I've helped over 3,000 coaches build a coaching portfolio. I've developed additional services to help coaches rebuild their cover letters and resumes, and also prepare them for job interviews.


While I am still a coach at the college level, I have developed a passion for helping other coaches succeed in the profession. If you are an experienced coach looking for your next opportunity or a young coach just entering the profession, I can help you. Please visit The Coaching Portfolio Guide or take a look at the services and packages I provide and let me help you land your next coaching job!
