Tuesday is here and so are a fresh slate of articles highlighting news from around the MWC. Check out what we have for you today.
The Ballad of Leon Rice.
This is a great chronicle of Coach Rice’s journey to get where he is. Starting as a high school coach, he sent 90 letters to college coaches asking to be a GA or volunteer assistant. It details how he formed close friendships with the other men breaking into college coaching at the same time and how those relationships led him to the stops he has had in his career. It’s a great read.
