Although his current job title is Assistant Coach at a Division 1 football program, what you'll find is that it's not always as pretty as it seems. Told from someone who is currently living in the process, you'll see that there is no magic pill, and success will not be given. According to Deane, “The most difficult part of coaching is when you lose and you’re trying to find the answers within those losses…you can’t judge success off of the end result. We can watch the tape of a win and ignore all of the bad plays. We can ignore all of our mental errors, our mistakes. Or you can go through and look at it critically. Ignoring the end result (win or lose) is one of the hardest things to do, but it’s one of the most important things to do."
