Recently, legendary college basketball coach Don Meyer passed away. Don Meyer was not a household name in terms of celebrity, but he was well-known for in basketball circles by coaches for his instructional videos and camps, solid teams, and teacher.
Four years ago, I took an online basketball coaching from Don Meyer through Northern State University. For the curriculum, I had access to notes and his videos teaching the game, and then had to submit a final paper. I watched the videos countless times to get new ideas and define my approach to coaching. It was a wonderful learning opportunity.
ESPN’s Buster Olney wrote a wonderful book a couple of years ago called How Lucky You Can Be: The Don Meyer story. While the book has many, many stories about the Coach, his family, players, and associates, I have included book notes in the two links below on what I considered basketball or leadership insights. I hope you enjoy.
Thank you for your service to the game and to the world, you will be missed.
