There has been a lot of buzz about new Minnesota football coach P.J. Fleck with how he turned around the Western Michigan program with his “Row the Boat” philosophy. While he seems a bit over the top, Fleck has great thoughts on culture, relationships and program-building. Linked below is my favorite article on Fleck with some others linked below.
About 20 players transferred or quit. Many others considered. But Terrell smiles at the recollection of Fleck’s persistent promise: “Those who stay will be champions.” Fleck isn’t so much a football coach as he is a change agent. He spends much more time each week preaching culture, preparing motivation and building camaraderie than he does worrying about beating Cover 2.
