    Chizik is Not the Only One

    Just for fun
    Gene Chizik is not the first national championship winning coach who writes a book.
    Other coaches include (I also list the short-version of the editorial for each book):
    Jim Tressel: More Than Coach Mentor Tressel
    http://www.amazon.com/More-Than-Coach-Mentor-Tressel/dp/1600782388
    For Ohio State head football coach Jim Tressel, all the wins and national championships he compiled at Youngstown State University and Ohio State University aren't nearly as important as the life lessons he has taught his players over the years. Many have gone on to become teachers, coaches, athletic directors, and law-enforcement officers and have had success far beyond the football field.

    Nick Saban: How Good Do You Want to Be?: A Champion’s Tips on How to Lead and Succeed at Work and in Life
    http://www.amazon.com/How-Good-You-Want-Champions/dp/0345500849/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1305213326&sr=1-1
    Saban uses anecdotes and straight talk to bring solid advice that crosses over from sports to other aspects of life, including overcoming obstacles, going the extra mile and being honest with oneself

    Pete Carroll: Win Forever: Live, Work and Play Like a Champion
    Carroll and Roth’s book explains how, through decades of coaching in the college and pro ranks, he developed his successful philosophy of winning, which, in a nutshell, is Do things better than they have ever been done before. Readers might well find inspiration in Carroll’s coherent philosophy, along with fresh ideas on bringing out the best in players.

    That's a heck of a list to join. I guess you must cheat first before you are allowed to write the book.
