I think it's just pretty common college thing


To be in an instructional and mentorship role over college students, it's good to have a college degree.

I can't think of any college coaches in any sports without degrees. I know of cases of prominent college basketball coaches who had to go back to school to finish degrees (not necessarily at the original institution) to get college coaching jobs. I'm pretty sure Sidney Lowe had to finish somewhere before taking the State job.
