At Coach U Live this year in Orlando, Brendan Suhr asked Billy Donovan, "What is coaching?" Some of Coach Donovan's responses included:
"You have to want to be coachable yourself. If you ask your players to be coachable, you have to ask your this."
"Take any player and have them reach their full potential on and off the court."
"It's not about how many games you win, it's about how your players talk about you and the time you spent together."
"Having patience -- the roots may not bloom until long after you're gone. It could be 5 to 10 years down the road.
Big thanks to USF Coach Jeff Osterman for passing on his Coach U notes to me!
