Famous Sports Coaching Books around Character and Values
Here are 8 that are probably in the top 10, Wooden by far being the most prolific and seemingly systematic of the group–as well as open about his overall coaching process. Also, theres probably the most available online about the Wooden system:
• John Wooden
• Coach K
• Tony Dungy
• Rick Patino
• Pat Riley
• Pat Summit (winningest Women Basketball coach)
• Phil Jackson’s
• Vince Lombardi
It may be that some of these are more oriented toward bios, but I think many contain coaching principles. Some just focus on dealing with adversity and the issue of team work–which realistically only scratch the surface of the character issue in the sports context.
My guess is the John Wooden, Coach K, and Tony Dungy would probably be the most oriented around developing character and values.
