Watching Juan Ososrio coach yesterday really got my wheels turning about coaching and teaching. I woke up this morning thinking about a lineup of caches that I have had the privilege to work with or closely observe, this is the list I came up with. It would be great to get all these guys in one room and be able to sit back and listen. I would like to hear from you on coaches and teachers you have seen and why you put them on an all-star list
Jim Radcliffe– When I think of Jim I think of progression and thoroughness. Great on the field and in the weight room.
Gary Winckler – The best sprint and hurdle coach there is. Without a peer. Thorough, scientific, and demanding. A man of few words who makes what he does say count.
Kevin McGill– Technically the best in the throws especially the hammer and the javelin. Passionate and demonstrative
Jim Richardson– Great communicator and technical coach on the deck. Thorough planner, very systematic. Always gets the most out of his talent.
Jim Steen– Supreme motivator, great teacher and leader
Nort Thornton– Innovative, always looking to learn. A great teacher.
Juan Osorio– Simply the best in soccer
Tex Winter– Great teacher and innovator. The genius in regard to basketball offense.
John Bach– Great teacher, deeply passionate. The best at teaching basketball defense.
Joe Vigil– Hands down the best teacher I have ever been around. Demanding. Always learning and working to be better.
