Inside the Head of an NFL Football Coach...Meet Buffalo Bills Head Coach Sean McDermott | Ep. 84 Todd Durkin IMPACT Show

    • Mental Health

Have you ever met someone and they have the “it” factor? Sean McDermott is one of those guys. While Sean is the current head football coach for the Buffalo Bills and has been coaching in the NFL for over 20-years, I knew he had the “it” factor even way back when we were teammates at William & Mary.
In today’s episode, Coach McDermott talks about his journey to become a head coach in the League, how to create a winning culture (as the Bills were perennial losers when he took over), leadership at all levels, what he personally does to keep his mind right, power of mentors, why he remains stoic on the sidelines despite being a fiery guy, and his thoughts on this upcoming season. Heck, he even shares a few “fun facts” about urs truly at the end of the show!
Without further ado, let’s “circle the wagons” and go out to the show with Buffalo Bills Head Coach, Sean McDermott.
If you’re a sports fan, have kids who play sports who need to hear great wisdom, or you just want to inspire other leaders and high-performers like yourself, please don’t forget to share this episode...
