We mentioned on Texasprepstars.com more than a month ago, but offer a reminder now that nationally ranked coaches Les Miles (LSU) and TCU head coach Gary Patterson are coming to Dallas Texas in February 2013 as part of the Nike Coach of the Year Clinic and new Nike Youth Coach of the Year.
It's obvious that Clarence Nevels, the CEO of Tag Team Sportz, is excited about this event and that Miles and Patterson will be huge draws to get coaches out in droves to hear them talk football.
Les Miles, the football coach at national power house LSU, and head coach Gary Patterson will be among the array of college coaches coming to the DFW Sheraton early in the year for the annual Nike Dallas Coach of the Year Football Clinic.
Clarence Nevels, the CEO and former youth coach who coordinates this event for Nike, has been very impressed with all the fans and parents who have taken the time to vote for their favorite coach for the Nike Youth Coach of the Year award.
“It’s incredible how organized they are at Nike COY,” Nevels said. “This week I received calls from two people on the staff regarding the itinerary and time of the talk and also the video equipment. Then I got a call from the National Director confirming everything and flight arrangements.
“He asked if there was anything he could do and said that we where doing a good job. I was just blown away,” Nevels said.
“The fact that one of the longest running members of the NIKE COY group wanted to do everything he could to help out simply amazed me. We actually have an itinerary from the time coaches touch Dallas to when they leave. It’s just a class operation.”
“We have an unbelievable staff,” Nevels said. “It will be huge. The Texas is a great football state, so this is only fitting.”
While designed primarily for coaches, Nevels said that the event is open to the public, but you must register.
