2012 Nike Coach of the Year Clinic

I don't know whether to be happy or sad about the fact that I'll be sitting through a Nick Saban
presentation on Friday evening.
I'm leaving this afternoon for the Nike Coach of the Year Clinic in Allentown, PA, and I'll be there until Saturday.  Speakers include Steve Addazio (Temple head coach), Bob Surace (Princeton head coach), G.A. Mangus (South Carolina quarterback coach), Larry Fedora (North Carolina head coach), Bill O'Brien (Penn State head coach), and Nick Saban (Alabama head coach), along with several other college and high school coaches.  I have some posts ready to go in my absence, but obviously, any breaking news in the next couple days will probably not be covered until I get back on Saturday or Sunday.

Last year's clinic was summarized in sections from Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3, so check those out if you're interested.  In particular, check out [former] Yale coach Tom Williams's comments on Michigan from Day 2.  If you're relatively new to reading the site, football hasn't changed much in the last year, so you might still find it relevant.  Last year's speakers included Danny Hope (Purdue head coach), Kirk Ferentz (Iowa head coach), Mike McQueary (Penn State's former receivers coach), and Paul Johnson (Georgia Tech head coach), among others.

I will be posting a summary of the presentations next week (or sometime soon).  In the meantime, look for tomorrow's scouting report on Murrieta (CA) Vista Murrieta athlete Su'a Cravens.
