Back to Class for Coaches
Penn State is starting a class this fall that examines how Joe Paterno handles the media. That gave The College Football Guys an idea. What other coaches could we study to learn valuable skills for the future, or at least get an easy A.
Here are some other class titles, inspired by college coaches, that might be successful on a campus near you.
George O'Leary, UCF - English 195 "Resume Building." Class discontinued, like this joke should be.
History 321 "Mr. Rogers affect on Popular Culture/Dress." - Jim Tressel, Ohio State
Pete Carroll, USC - Sales 401 "How to Win Games and Influence Recruits...with Money."
Physiology 350 "The Inter-workings of a Smile." - Ty Willingham, Washington
Rich Rodriguez. Michigan - Admin 150 "From Shredders to Scissors, the Ins and Outs of Office Machinery." Community college favorite.
