So You Want To Be A College Coach?

My first question is always, why? Is it because you get to travel to cool cities, pick the players you coach, make some cash, or focus on hoops all day? If you answered yes to any of these questions, walk away now before you ever email out a resume. To stick in college coaching your WHY must be about your drive and passion to help people, and to build and grow something bigger than yourself. College coaching is not for everyone. Trust me.  I have seen it up close and personal. It looks good, like most things on the outside, but once you jump in your character and competitive index will be tested right away. Be prepared for the cold water!

So you want to be a college coach? I do not blame you. I LOVE it. No two days are ever the same, every day presents new challenges, and you can experience personal and professional growth at a high level.

My advice would be-GET YOUR MIND RIGHT and JUMP!
