Having experienced various transitions with regard to both conference and national affiliation, I was regularly being contacted to consult with and assist other institutions and conferences...
The presidents and athletic administrators seeking assistance along with other requests to assist in the area of staffing are what motivated me to start ASC. I wanted to assist other institutions in building their programs by maximizing personnel, creating a vision and developing a plan for improvement.
McAloose has unparalleled experience in a variety of positions within the NCAA, NJCAA, and NAIA. He has been a commissioner, an athletic director, a coach, a student-athlete and has worked at every level of the NCAA.
Carl McAloose formed Athletics Staffing and Consultants (ASC) because presidents, athletics directors and commissioners were referred to him to assist them with many consulting and staffing projects.
"When working in the staffing area, ASC will find out the type of individual you are searching for and make the contacts to find you the most qualified and diverse pool of applicants available.
When counseling on various issues, ASC will be able to research the issues, understand the specific challenges, and cost effectively create a vision".
He has numerous contacts with the NCAA, NJCAA, and NAIA staffs, with conference commissioners, with directors of athletics, and with coaches throughout the country.McAloose is known as a great judge of talent and personnel in college athletics and for his vision and ability to develop a plan to attain that vision. McAloose may be the only individual who has built two collegiate athletic programs from their inceptions as the Director of Athletics at Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) and and Florida Southwestern College (FSW).
At both locations, McAloose hired the staff members, built the facilities, obtained the funding, garnered community support, and built the foundation to help make both schools nationally competitive in a short period of time.
As Director of Athletics at FGCU, McAloose was responsible for building the FGCU program from its inception in 2000 and laying the ground work for “Dunk City.” FGCU was the first institution to receive a waiver from the NCAA II during the transition period. FGCU made a move from Division II to NCAA Division I in the Fall of 2008, making it the fastest university to make the transition. He developed the feasibility study that helped FGCU make the decision to move to NCAA I and was responsible for establishing FGCU Division I conference membership. He developed a strategic plan to meet the university’s mission and goals for the move to NCAA I. During this process, McAloose helped FGCU acquire over $50 million, including a $5 million gift which enabled the development of Alico Arena.
At FGCU, McAloose was responsible for hiring a staff who built programs which brought unprecedented success. During their first season of NCAA post season eligibility, FGCU had six teams represented at the NCAA II championships. Following this season in their second season, ten of eleven teams competed in the NCAA championships. During the 2007-08 season, FGCU had several teams advance in the NCAA tournament with two teams’ ranked No.1. The Eagles won 80 percent of their Division II contests. The success continued as a Division I program as FGCU won seven conference championships in five sports in its first 18 months in Division I. Student-athletes also succeeded in the classroom with a 3.2 GPA or higher during each year and contributed annually over 7,500 hours of community service.
In 2015, the development and building continued, as McAloose pioneered the athletics program at FSW, in Fort Myers, Florida. McAloose helped produce over $30 million dollars to build SunCoast Credit Union Arena and upgrade City of Palms Park. FSW has had unparalleled success as within the first three years of playing 75% of teams were ranked in the top five in the country for the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA), while 100% of the sports where ranked in the top 15, and two teams were ranked #1 in the country. The foundation was built and teams in the 2018-19 seasons won 89% of their contests (the highest in NJCAA history).
Prior to joining FGCU, McAloose was the Commissioner of the Great Lakes Valley Conference, where he increased the conference reserve 500 percent and the budget by 50 percent through the incorporation of corporate partnerships. McAloose also enhanced the GLVC’s championships including the implementation of a neutral site men’s and women’s basketball championship which attracted over 21,000 people annually. He was also instrumental, as their first full-time commissioner, in setting up the conference operations, budget, staffing, and strategic plan.
