Life is Plan A...your sport is Plan B | Coach Chris Petersen

Life is Plan A...your sport is Plan B | Coach Chris Petersen

My guest this week is Coach Chris Petersen (aka. Coach Pete) a former College football head coach (Univ. of Washington Huskies, Boise State Broncos). He is the first two-time winner of the Paul "Bear" Bryant Award, which he won in 2006 and 2009. Petersen also won the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Award in 2010. At Washington, Petersen led the Huskies to the College Football Playoff in 2016, but fell to Alabama in the Peach Bowl. Petersen announced his resignation on December 2, 2019, to be effective after the team's bowl game.

What we discussed:

  • 4:51 | A time when Coach "Pete" gained everyone's respect as a young coach at UofO
  • 5:29 | Building connection with people (even if they didn't pick you to lead them)
  • 7:40 | Leadership (built-for-life concept)
  • 11:51 | Repurposing the platform of football (life skill, decision-making)
  • 13:02 | More than the game (the invasion of the identity snatchers)
  • 17:03 | Life is plan A...Ball is plan B
  • 18:12 | Not an OG but an OKG
  • 22:50 | Performance Character and Relational Character
