"You're teaching everyday"
Indiana State head coach Trent Miles is in his fifth year leading the Sycamore football program. After getting his first win in 2009, Coach Miles found a way to win 6 games the next season, matched by a six win season last year as well.
This spring Miles says that the players have shown a lot of excitement and have been able to persevere through the intense physical demands of the off season conditioning program. During practice the other day, Miles talked with the media about the off season and spring ball and what he enjoys about the coaching profession.
"You're teaching everyday" Miles explains. "Whether you're on the field, or in the meeting room, or in and around the office, anytime you can, you're teaching".
Miles says that coaches get into the profession knowing the hours they have to put in. "We don't get into it thinking we're going to have a bunch of vacation time, this is what we love to do. It's a thrill to be out here. You get enough family time, you always wish you could have more, but at the same time this (practice) is family time".
