Always be sure to remember that you are a role model and an educator more than anything else. Leading your team with high standards and integrity will lead to success.
As an athletic director, I have the unique responsibility of coaching coaches. I am lucky that I have many wonderful coaches working for me, and I feel that we run a very good athletic department.
I have learned that the success of coaches hinges on more than their number of wins and losses; being a successful coach is dependent on being a good communicator. Coaches that are great communicators are the coaches that are successful at all levels.
