It’s a long title for a complicated topic:
When is it right for college coaches to step away from coaching and begin a career outside of the college campus?
Most coaches have that question run through their mind from time to time, and it’s not an easy decision. So, how do you go about making the right decision?
That’s what we wanted to ask this episode’s guest, former Division I basketball recruiting coordinator Larita Wilcher. She made the tough decision to walk away from a good job with a bright future, deciding instead to spend more time with her family and launching a tech start-up. Risky? You bet. Stressful? Oh yeah.
And yet, she says she’d do it all over again.
We talk to her about making a big decision like this, and what her advice is for her fellow coaches who are contemplating the same thing. She also talks about the cool technology company she has founded since leaving coaching.
