“No matter what level, front runners have a shelf life. There is going to be adversity. I don’t think any coach solves the problem by himself. He is not going to take a mentally weak player or team and strengthen them. Rather, he has to help them help themselves. They have to be active participants in their own rescue. Great players want to be helped, they want to be coached, they want to be corrected. YOU have to help them in those critical areas to have more poise and more resolve”
