"They call it coaching, but it is teaching. You do not just tell them it is so. You show them the reasons why it is so, and then you repeat and repeat until they are convinced, until they know."
"Don't ask questions you can answer yourself."
"Coaches who can outline plays on a blackboard are a dime a dozen. The one who win get inside their players and motivate them."
"To be a good coach, you have to be the opposite of what you feel. When your team is going bad, you want to get on their ass but that's when everybody else is on their ass. Their family, their friends, the fans, the media, the guy in the grocery store. That's when you need to pat them on the back, to tell them to just keep working hard and everything will be all right. Conversely, when everything is going good, you don't have to pat them on the back because everybody else is. That's when you have to be tough."
"The greatest glory is not in never falling but in raising every time we fall."
"Teams do not go physically stale. They go mentally stale."
"No leader, however great, can long continue unless he wins battles. The battle decides all."
