Joanne P. McCallie, or Coach P. as she is widely known, has headed up the Duke University Blue Devils, in Durham, North Carolina since 2007, where she has an 82% win record. Prior to that she lead the women’s basketball program at Michigan State and before that the University of Maine.

This interview was carried out in August, 2013.

Basketball Coaching: English NBA Standout On Enlightened Leadership and Fatherhood

John Amaechi, gay athletes, sports coaching psychology
john-amaechi-playing-basketball
We’ve been looking forward to having John Amaechi on the show for a long time. He’s a gentleman, a scholar and a retired world-class basketball player.

He’s best known for having been Britain’s most successful NBA player, with starting roles at the Cleveland Caveliers, the Orlando Magic and the Utah, Jazz. Impressive, but what’s amazing is that John hadn’t even picked up a basketball until his was 17 years old. Before that he was a bookish, chubby kid living with his single mum near Manchester.

What followed was an incredibly ambitious and intense five-year training programs that brought him into the NBA. This is all detailed in his excellent book Man in the Middle. The autobiography also movingly recounts his evolution from being an “in the closet” gay man during his time playing professional basketball to becoming an active and articulate advocate for gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and trans-gender rights, inside and outside the world of sports. Oh, and did I mention he also adopted two at-risk boys and raised them to adulthood. At the ripe old age of 44, he’s now a grandfather.
john-amaechi-bbcHaving studied organizational psychology while playing full time basketball, John is now highly sought-after consultant and performance coach as well as being a commentator on the BBC and active with numerous charities. His website is www.amaechiperformance.com

Muffet McGraw has been coaching women’s basketball for 31 years, the last 26 at powerhouse Notre Dame. She’s compiled a hugely impressive 73% win record and notched up her 700th victory this past season, only the 13th coach in the NCAA women’s game to do so.That’s not all, this year Coach McGraw was awarded all four major coach of the year titles, for the second time in her career, becoming just the second coach to sweep the awards twice. But as you’ll hear in the interview she’s still learning and still hungry to win, including a burning desire for the NCAA Tournament Championship Title.

Bucknell Basketball’s Paulsen on Principle-Driven Team Building

NCAA Division I, Mike Muscala, Communication

dave_paulsen_bucknell_team

Big league college basketball is in focus this week on Sports Coach Radio. We’re joined by Dave Paulsen, head coach of the Bucknell University men’s team. Dave is an inspiring member of a younger generation of emotionally intelligent basketball coaches who achieve great results with today’s somewhat more demanding young athletes.

The handle is @sportscoachtalk. And we’d be grateful if you’d leave a short review of the show on the Apple iTunes page.

Dave Paulsen has steadily worked his way up the coaching ranks, spending his first 14 years as a head coach with NC double A Division II and III schools. His most successful stint was at his alma mater, Williams, the elite “Little Ivy” college in north western Massachusetts. He posted a 76 per cent winning record during six seasons at Williams.
Dave_Paulsen_standingDave moved up to Division I Bucknell, in central Pennsylvania, in 2008. There he experienced a first season best characterized as “challenging” – winning 7 and losing 23. Since then it’s been onward and upward: a 14 and 17 record in 2009-10, 25 and 9 in 2010-11, 25 and 10 in 2011-12, reaching the second round of the NCAA Tournament and this past season, the record in the history of the school 28 and 5 when Bucknell again reached the second round of the tournament. If this rate of improvement continues, we’re going to hear quite a lot about Dave Paulsen over the coming years. He was jointly named the National Association of Basketball Coaches District 13 Coach of the Year.

We caught up with him the other day en route to his daughter’s lacrosse game. Now normally we say don’t drive and philosophize about coaching at at the same time, but Dave does rather a good job at it.
Highlights
– Respect needed for the coach more than liking
– Primacy of the team will always win out over the individual
– “The longer I coach the more important values become.”
– Bucknell Basketball Core Values: Passion, Talk, Toughness & Focus
– Compel them to communicate, if not punish them
– On verbal and physical coaching abuse at Rutgers: “Shocking”
