The calendar for a college basketball coach has very few windows of free time. The job is a seven-days-a-week, 12-months-a-year commitment. I remember friends asking my wife, Karen, what I did in the offseason. Her response was, “What offseason?” Though the games are over, the work just begins.
Let’s take a look at what a typical college coach goes through from April until September.
April, May and June
April is a time to finish up the current recruiting class and evaluate underclassmen. May begins strength training, individual workouts, individual player meetings, program self-evaluations, official or unofficial underclassmen visits and helping the university with its grass-roots fundraising. Often the school will have as many as 16 events for a coach to attend throughout the institution’s geographic footprint. These are full-day events that take you away from your team and family.
