Mr. National Champion Coach

About Me:

I am an older candidate hoping to pivot from academia to industry and relocate from the rural deep south to a cosmopolitan city. I am also an academic (philosophy) turned professional athlete turned 11x national championship-winning coach of a co-ed college athletic team. I have fundraised over half a million dollars to keep the program afloat amidst cuts. I am like Ted Lasso before Ted Lasso existed.
