Brian Cross Interview Part 1

Interview with Olentangy Orange – Head Football Coach Brian Cross



What advice would you give a new coach starting out?


Develop a philosophy and it has to be yours.  Something you believe in.  Try to stay up to date in all areas strength training, speed and conditioning and football X & O’s.  Surround yourself with good quality coaches that are all on the same page listen to them and let them coach their positions. Have patience to let your philosophy take hold. You have got to try to stay as up to date as you can but don’t change because of change sake. Change because you believe in something. Change because you have studied something and think it is better than what you are doing. If you don’t think it is better than what you are doing and you don’t believe in it then don’t change.
