    THE COACHABLE COACH | Ed Schilling

    THE COACHABLE COACH | Ed Schilling

    Today's guest on "The Coachable Coach" series is Ed Schilling, the assistant basketball coach at Grand Canyon University. 
    "The Coachable Coach" series on the Success is a Choice Podcast Network goes beyond the X's and O's as Jamy Bechler talks with some of the best sports coaches.
    Jamy talks with coaches who value growth, improvement, and leadership – not just with their athletes but for themselves, as well. They believe that a strong culture doesn’t just happen by accident. Good coaches may know the X’s and O’s, the tactics, and strategies that should lead to winning BUT great coaches know their athletes. Great coaches go beyond the X’s and O’s. Great coaches know how to inspire their athletes to do their best and maximize their chances for success.

    Ed Schilling prior to his current role as Grand Canyon University's assistant coach, he's also has been an assistant coach for UCLA, Indiana, Memphis, UMass, and the New Jersey Nets. Additionally, he was the head basketball coach at Wright State University.
