The Most Important Hire A Coach Can Make?

Just read a great blog post by Eric Musselman, ( former NBA Head Coach), courtesy of my friend Josh Ford at about hiring a strength and conditioning coach called The Most Important Hire a Coach Can Make. Take a second to read it.

Coming from a former head coach in the NBA this is quite a compliment. It’s even better in light of Coach Meyer and Coach Stoops comments. I think that the sport coaches who are successful truly get the value of a great strength and conditioning coach. Just remember, being a great strength coach is as much or more about how you do the job as it is about what you know. The big key is attention to detail. No matter what program you choose to run, you must do it well.

I wrote the following three or four years ago. Take a second and see just how important the great strength coaches have been to the NFL.
