Read this piece of news and find yourself not the slightest bit surprised in any way, and in fact looking forward to reading what a football coach has to say about a North American hero:
PULLMAN, Wash. - An upcoming book co-authored by Washington State University's Mike Leach and Buddy Levy about Apache warrior Geronimo will focus on leadership.
Levy, a clinical associate professor who teaches English at WSU, said he originally pitched the idea to his agent who also represents Leach, WSU head football coach. The agent suggested talking to Leach because he knew Leach is fascinated by Geronimo.
"It started when my mom would read us books when we were kids, and for some reason I got into Geronimo," Leach said. "We'd go to the library and grab these historic books about him, and she would read them every night."
The book, still in the works, will talk about general leadership and problem solving skills that spill over into all aspects of management and people, Levy said. His strong point is the history, whereas Leach has a profound understanding of leadership, he said.
