To me, a great coach is someone who provides challenging opportunities for his team, which in turn inspires them to believe in themselves. Great coaches don’t allow their players to become complacent. They push their players outside of their comfort zones, physically, mentally, and emotionally in order to get them most out of them.
"The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will."
Mike Brey and Roy Williams
Michael Jordan is my all-time favorite athlete. He was a fierce competitor and would always give 100% when he took the floor.
My parents, Rick and Lynn Passarelli, are both my role models and heroes.
I measure a player’s success by how much they grow not only as athletes during the season, but as a person as well. I want them to work hard and succeed in whatever they choose to do.
Doubters inspire me! I wasn’t always the biggest or strongest athlete, but all the people who doubted me gave me the extra motivation I needed to earn a Division I scholarship. They still inspire me to this day.
