Our Job… Your Tree

Recently amid all of the hoopla, conjecture and speculation regarding Jim Harbaugh’s decision to leave the 49ers and the NFL to land at Michigan, was a nugget that struck me.

The commentators were all discussing the usual, obvious reasons… money, returning to his roots, etc.

Then Lou Holtz made these observations…

He said that some coaches are simply more suited for collegiate coaching positions, not because their skill can’t cut it at the professional level, but because they feel they can have a greater impact on young men’s lives at the collegiate level… both to players that play for them, and coaches that coach with them.

woody hayesHoltz said, “Woody Hayes is alive today because he taught me…”

Coach Holtz was an assistant for Woody Hayes at Ohio State in 1968. Ohio State won the National Championship that year.

 

Think about it…

Who will you live on through?

They are in your program now.

Ours is an awesome job that comes with awesome responsibility.
