Lessons I’ve Learned About Life and Football from My NFL Coaching Career
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
A twenty-year career in the NFL, a member of a Super Bowl Championship team, and nine years as a defensive coordinator provided a unique perspective on leadership.
A defensive coordinator reports to a head coach. The position therefore offers the vantage point of both a leader and a team member. This awareness lends the ability to impart lessons on how to lead with the understanding of what it’s like to be led – all under the bright lights of the big leagues.
Over the course of his thirty-five-year football career, Bob spent time in the company of people at their best and at their worst. He saw how they responded to success and how they extended their humanity; on- and off-camera.
His was that rarefied experience of life in the NFL.
Bob and his wife Carol are the proud parents of four children: Ryan, Andrea, Bobby, and Steven.
I loved this book!
I bought this book for my husband, but ended up reading it before he did!
He knows the meaning of finding joy in life.

An especially great read for young coaches just starting out
It is a tribute to our game through the insightful eyes of a skilled and respected veteran of high level football. A thoughtful and introspective view of collegiate and professional football and the athletes and coaches who live in that world.
“Sixty Minutes to a Lifetime” will give both the average fan and the experienced football professional some really thought provoking concepts.
I think this an especially great read for young coaches just starting out regardless of the sport. If you want to pick up some great do’s and dont’s from someone who has walked down that path - here it is.
