“You can have a much bigger impact not coaching, I’ve found, in the media than you can while you are coaching.” – Dan Dakich

Dan Dakich has gone from coach of Indiana University basketball to sports talk radio host and, now, TV analyst for college basketball games on ESPN.  It’s obviously been a different road for him to where he is.

Where Dakich is now is somewhere between doing what he loves… and euphoria.  The choices that he has made in recent years have led him to a very happy life, including the choice he made to get into sports radio with the ability to thrive in it due to his unique, tell-it-how-it-really-is-and-not-the-fake-kind-of-tell-it-how-it-really-is style.

Check out more of the show notes below to get a feel for what you will hear in this edition of The PASR.
