John Gagliardi, the winningest coach in college football history, retired today after 60 years on the job. I attached an article about him, but if you haven't heard much about him, do a few searches online - he's got a very neat approach to coaching.
At 86, John Gagliardi is stepping down after 64 seasons as a college football coach, 60 of them at St. John’s University in Collegeville, Minn.
I don't have a clue how he managed to do what he did with those practice techniques. Is ne interested to see film of how he did conduct practice vs. his teams on field performance.
Sine Missione -- Never be a spectator for unfairness or stupidity, argue for arguments sake; the grave will give plenty of time for silence.
I've read a few stories about him over the years, but I agree with you - I'd be very interested in watching a practice up close. From what I've heard, his players are so unbelievably enthusiastic about everything they do because they never have to do anything that players typically hate. So that's part of it. They obviously get a lot of great players in their program as well, and it likely had a snowball effect where success bred more success.
