The stress and health issues among coaches in our great profession is well documented; Urban Meyer had his health related issues, as did Mark Dantonio and numerous other coaches in recent memory.
How many coaches are actually doing something about it though? Steve Sarkisian shared a bit with the USC Trojans TV station about his plan to keep his staff healthy earlier today, and I found his vision quite interesting.
"I can tell you, on our end, we do not sleep in office. That old adage of sleeping in the office is over. We don't do that."
"Also, it is mandatory for every one of our coaches to do 30 minutes of some form of physical activity every single day, and we really just try to promote a healthy lifestyle."
"We may not see the effects of it right away, but come November and December, I'm hopeful that we're a lot more fresh of a staff, a lot more clear thinking, and that we're providing the best coaching for our players."
