Entertaining and Informational Pod

From the complexity of loading a dish washer to the “ease” the hosting and managing a sold out sporting event (how you can efficiently organize one but not the other is intriguing), the Off Duty ADs cover it all on this POD. New and veteran ADs alike will find this POD a valuable resource. Monday’s will never quite be the same once you subscribe (In a good way). :-).

Great pod during quarantine

Picked up this pod while being quarantined at home and helped me as a coach get my sports fix and think about things I deal with coaching. You don’t have to be an AD but this pod is great for parents, coaches and AD’s to give people perspective on High School athletics around the country for every sport. I also love all the side stories these guys bring to the pod.

Thank you

I am a 23 year old aspiring AD/ coach and I really appreciate this podcast because it gives me insight to the problems I should be prepared to go through. It also reinforces the values I should instill in my players and coach’s so again I say thank you for this podcast.
