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.
