Duke’s Coach P. Inspires Fierce Competitors in Basketball and Life; Re-broadcast
Choices, not chances; re-broadcast
This week we have one of the leading women’s basketball coaches in NCAA. Not just a coach but a thought leader and an eloquent proponent of how sports can be a powerful force for social good.
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.
Coach P . has led teams into three National Championship game appearances in her career, and has been named conference coach of the year five times. This season, which starts in just a few weeks, looks like it might be truly epic.
She is the author of Choice Not Chance: Rules for Building a Fierce Competitor, an inspiring book that helps young athletes, their parents and their coaches focus on the key moments in life when success or failure are built.
