This one is for the wives

We don't often write articles on this site aimed at coaches wives (OK, we've probably never done it before); but this video resonated with us. 

Stanford special teams coordinator Brian Polian's wife Laura filmed a short clip for Stanford Athletics this week while in Scottsdale for the Fiesta Bowl. The first minute or so of the video is Laura talking about the hotel where the team is staying...that's not the part that resonated with us.

Later in the segment she speaks about watching her husband coach. She mentions that she thinks he's a great coach, great mentor, etc...then she says sometimes she wishes he was a little softer on the players... (and then the clouds parted, sunlight appeared...cue the FootballScoop music)..."but that's his job...and they recognize he can't be soft on them".

This clip should be required viewing for all prospective coaches wives. Well said Laura.
