Nearly every coach asks herself or himself, “Self, what do I need to do to become a college coaching legend?”
To help answer that, we turned to a man who describes himself as “a legend in his own mind”. He’s Coach Morgan Randall, author of Everything Parents Know About Coaching and legendary voice on Twitter (@TheCoachRandall).
We sat down with him on April 1st to talk about his sage advice for rising college coaches, how he’s managed to last this long in coaching without being sued, and his thoughts on this generation of college coaches. He refers to me as “Don” throughout the interview, and actually hijacks the conversation at the end so that he can interview me.
It was an exhausting, combative, confusing interview. Alas, Coach Randall does manage to make several good observations about coaches today and what it takes to be successful. If you want to spend an hour listening to a lovable curmudgeon ramble about college coaching, you’ve come to the right place. Enjoy it, Coach!
