Overview

In The End Is Not the Trophy, David Odom, who has guided Wake Forest University's men's basketball to seven consecutive NCAA appearances and two consecutive ACC championships ('95 and '96), shares his own thoughts and insights on his lifetime in the world of coaching and sports. With humor and revealing candor, Odom talks about the stresses faced by coaches at any level, but especially those at the highest collegiate levels; how balance is needed to survive; his views on important relationships (with other coaches, players, the media, fans); and other topics. As a unique addition, the book offers a chapter by his wife, Lynn Odom, giving her perspective on being a coach's wife and raising a family in the public eye. A foreword by Terry Holland, Athletic Director at the University of Virginia and former head basketball coach at Virginia with whom David Odom coached for seven years offers a southern perspective on basketball and life.
