I’m asked all the time “How do I get into college coaching?”

I retired from Johns Hopkins on June 30, 2017, and while I would love to say "and haven't looked back". That just is not true. It would be difficult just to leave after 31 years, go "cold turkey", and not look back (or continue to stay in the sport). In fact, it would be nearly impossible. So, it has been a thrill to work as a volunteer coach at Johns Hopkins and speak about some of the life skills learned in my decades as head coach.
