Rick Majerus Book

I just got done reading Rick Majerus' book. It was a pretty good read. It wasn't amazing, but it was entertaining for the most part. It talked a lot about his coaching stops and recruiting. It included a bunch of small stories.

I enjoyed reading about how he approached coaching. How he continually tries to improve by watching other coaches and see if it is better their way or his own way. He really is obsessed with the game of basketball. He lives basketball.

He made a good point about looking to go to different jobs. He said he always listened to offers and see what they had to offer, but every job is going to have problems. No job is perfect, climate and facilities don't make recruits automatically come to play for you.

Lots of small tidbits especially for aspiring coaches.
