It seems that the days of the great motivators are behind us. In the wake of Phil Jackson's 11th championship victory, I wanted to pose the question. Are there any coaches in today's professional or college era that truly represent greatness and set the example for other coaches to follow? In my coaching days, I really tried to be as tough as I could while also showing the kids that I really cared for them. My example then was former Rams coach Dick Vermeil, who was a passionate fiery coach that led his team to a Superbowl victory.
