I'm honored to have as a return guest to Beyond The Whistle, my friend Kevin Sutton, Assistant Men's Basketball Coach at the University of Rhode Island. Kevin was my very first interview guest, appearing in episode two, "Persistence on the Coaching Career Path". In that episode, Kevin shared his career journey and how he has woven a path from coaching at two nationally ranked high school programs, to a college coaching career in the Atlantic 10, Big East and ACC.

In some ways, this episode became an unplanned follow up to episode two. Last season at Pitt, Kevin experienced a season no one wishes to have. An 8-24 overall record and winless season in the ACC led to the dismissal of coach Kevin Stallings and the entire Pitt staff, including Kevin.

In this episode, Kevin openly shares:

  • His excitement for the opportunity to join the staff of Rhode Island first year head coach David Cox
  • The professional and personal lessons he took away from an 8-24 season
  • What a "WIN" means to him in his coaching career
  • How he spent his time between jobs
  • Taking time to reconnect with family
  • Having the hard conversations with your spouse in order to have a plan for your career
  • The importance of staying relevant in your career
  • Having a plan for your job search so you are networking and pursuing the right opportunities

I'm thankful for Kevin and his candid conversation.
