Jeff- very good and insightful article. I enjoyed it very much. Great read.
You are a lucky man. so do only former players get those positions? how does one
get into coaching without playing?
the head coach at texas tech never played football.
This is about Kelly, not Brady. Brady is playing with the Packers.
i worked as an intern a few years back. it is not an easy job. you are basically
an errand boy and you aren't allowed to coach. it's much less glorious than the
takes a lot of attention to detail, like knowing which Poppinga the article is
about. ;)Then you have to kiss a lot of you know what and hope it
leads to something.It's the good ol' boys club, if you're in, you're
in and if you're not, find a new career.
like any internship, you are there to learn from the professionals. i think it's
great that they get at least a scholarship. when i was there, i didn't get that.
go get 'em Kelly. Keep ol' duaner on his toes!
is a great career. i have really enjoyed it. it is just so hard for young guys
to get into it. i have seen a lot of burned out coaches in their 30s and 40s
just such long hours. if you are in it for the wrong reasons, any but helping
young men grow and improve, get out. i love coaching, but i know it has taken
years off of my life.
Just being able to be close to Coach Bornco must be worth not getting paid for
being an intern. So awesome, yet so humble.
It's a lot of hard work but worth it, like anything else, if you're willing to
pay the price you can get some terrific dividends. It allowed my son to work on
and get his masters degree and is now coaching at Fresno State just immediately
after bein an intern then a Graduate Assistant. The coaches are great to work
with and they will help you land a great job if they see your worth. Lots of
hours, lack of sleep but a great opportunity in the future - again, only if
you're willing to pay the price
if you love football and don't know how to do anything else then you can be an
Kelly, good luck chasing your dream!P.S. - 1st thing I'd do is move
out of Salt Lake to Provo!Even sleeping in my car would be better
than living my few off-hours on I-15....
