Tom Bergeron of Rivals.com shares the amazing story of the Chino High School football team’s dramatic turnaround. He writes:
“Let’s get two things straight about Chino (Calif.) High’s amazing turnaround – going from 0-10 to 10-0 in one season.
First, the team really went from 0-18 to 10-0.
‘Two years ago the team won its first two games but then lost the last eight, so we were really facing an 18-game losing streak,’ first-year coach Matt McCain said.
That leads to the second point.
McCain may be the first-year head coach at Chino, but he’s hardly in his first year at the school.
He’s a 1990 grad who returned after playing in college and became a long-time assistant to legendary coach John Monger, who led the team to numerous state titles.
He stepped away from the team four years ago – to spend more time with his three kids – but maintained his role as athletic director at the school.
Last December, he felt it was time to re-establish a once-great program. And he knew he was the man to do it.”
What lessons can we learn from Coach McCain to help us turnaround our organization?
