The research on burnout in the sports context has grown rapidly, particularly in the dual role of teacher-coaches. However, few studies examine the relationship between burnout and job demand stressors in Physical education (PE) teacher-athletic directors. The present study examined the prevalence of burnout and determined the relationship between three dimensions of burnout and job demand stressors. One hundred twenty-nine Korean PE teacher-athletic directors (men = 118, women = 11, 64% response rate) responded to a questionnaire measuring job demand stressors, including (a) role conflict, (b) role ambiguity, and (c) work overload and burnout. Based on a comparison to the norms of the MBI-ES, Korean PE teacher-athletic directors displayed a moderate level of emotional exhaustion, and low levels of depersonalization and personal accomplishment. Regression results revealed role conflict and work overload significantly contributed to emotional exhaustion. Work overload significantly contributed to depersonalization. None of the three predictor variables were significant predictors of personal accomplishment. (Contains 4 tables.)
