The website The Coaching Assist is full of coaching wisdom. The two women coaches do a great job of interviewing coaches at a wide variety of levels to get their insights about the game and the profession.

They also provide detailed information on books.

Here they provide an excellent summary of the book The Carolina Way by the coaching great Dean Smith.

I read this book in the late 90s and loved it.

It was good to be able to review many of the best ideas in this way.

One great example of Dean Smith’s wisdom

“Posted a “Coaches Honor Roll” the day after the game with the stats that the coach found important. Included who was most unselfish, defensive stats, offensive rebounding, deflections, charges, etc.”

Check out The Coaching Assist when you get a chance.

It’s worth your time.
