Byron Thomas has a great foundation (and a great story as well). He's from California, has coached and recruited up north and has now served as a grad assistant at both South Florida and Texas A&M. He both played for and worked for Ed Meierkort and earned just about the highest compliment one can from Mark Snyder (you gotta watch the video).
Every coach we have spoken with that has worked with Byron says great things about him. He's going to be one of the leaders of this profession twenty years down the road.
Watch the video and hear him tell you about his road to Texas A&M...fascinating. Thomas' story should remind all young coaches that you never know when that break might come.
