“As a career assistant coach, it is normal to think you can do a better job by making changes. This book provides a great guide to help take that next step successfully. Combining this information with the Outside the Lines Manual and the Santiago Road Map also offered by Eight Laces, I feel very confident that I have a better understanding and that I am better prepared to be effective in that role.” – Coach Tom Sousa
“(This book) has a great perspective and Coach Fore uses his own experiences from both the coaching side and A.D. side to communicate what Athletic Directors look for. I learn many new principles with every chapter that I’ve read, and I’m sure that no matter what level of coaching you’re in, it’s a great read to help map out the job-hunt and selection process.” – Jordan Fells
