Football Coaches' Touching Gesture

I don't normally double post like this, but this struck me this morning.  Very good article on Mark Richt, who recently has come under fire about the situation at Georgia.  However through it all, the heat from the fans and media has not changed the man that Mark Richt is.  I think us as coaches need to take a lesson from this.  In today's game where we are scrutinized for every little thing, some of us forget to be good human beings first and foremost (hey, I'm guilty of it too).  It is my belief that to be good at anything, you must be good at being a good person first.  Sorry to get philosophical, but this article made me "stop and smell the roses"!

Check out the article from ESPN here.
