Thank You Coach

Steve Meyerhoff was Executive Editor of The Sporting News from 1994 to 2004.  I worked there for a few of those years and recall him as thoughtful, curious and kind.  So I am not surprised that Meyerhoff has launched a blog called “Thank You Coach” — a showcase for personal tributes to coaches who have shaped you, me, and anybody who ever played a game.


Here’s how Meyerhoff explains it:

“For as long as I can remember, sports has been my life’s passion. Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, then outside of New York City and finally in St. Louis, I played just anything that involved either a stick or a ball: baseball, hockey, golf, basketball, football and – though having neither a ball nor a stick – running.
