We went over 1,000,000 unique users on this website this year!

I’m blown away by that.  I started this website with 10 simple pages in 2011 after getting fired by a new Superintendent at the private school I was serving at as the Athletic Director and Head Football Coach. (One of my favorite articles I’ve ever written: “You’ve Been Fired, Now What?”  Read about my story of turning being fired in to something great!)

I built the site just to be able to send out to school leaders as I was looking for a new job.  Six years later, and this website has led me to some INCREDIBLE opportunities in the world of football, coaching and athletics.  I’m grateful for the business that I launched, Eight Laces Consulting, that grew out of launching this website.

Each year, it is neat to look back at what we’ve done.  As a person, as a coach, as a family, as a team, as a teacher, no matter what you are or where you are, it’s important to look back.  To celebrate your successes, and evaluate your failures.

My kiddos! Were YOU naughty or nice in 2017?! (The look on my youngest son’s face! Priceless!)

Looking back at CoachFore.org over the year, I wanted to share with you the Top 10 Articles of 2017!  I hope that you’re able to learn a little something from one or more of them.
