“My plan after my retirement was to go back to Tennessee and coach four-five years. However, my plans changed when I was offered the position at Washington-Wilkes. I’m thankful for the opportunity to work for an amazing school system.”
4. When you take over a new program, what is your first priority? As a coach who has coached at several schools, what would you tell coaches that they probably don’t already know about getting a program turned in the right direction? “The first thing I have always done is to build relationships with all stakeholders associated with the program – administration, faculty/staff, boosters, coaches – but most important is the relationship made with the players. As to what I’d tell coaches, put together a staff of like-minded individuals who share your vision. Evaluate your program and establish your goals and objectives. Be consistent in your expectations of everyone in the program to work toward becoming a champion.”
