How to coach (I mean "teach") History in Texas

I run many canned searches each day.  This is how it came up this morning (note:  I was not searching for coaching in any way).

I bring this up so folks getting into the field will see how it works.  When making life plans it's useful to have someone point out the hidden obstacles.

I will close with a quote from Bierce:
ACADEME, n.  An ancient school where morality and philosophy were taught.
ACADEMY, n.  [from ACADEME] A modern school where football is taught.
