Coach Forward is an interview-style podcast hosted by Jason Mejeur (Coach J), accomplished Coach, Mentor, and Founder/CEO at MaxOne.
Today, I'm excited to be joined by Coach Brendan Suhr. Coach Suhr is viewed as one of the most respected figures in basketball with nearly 30 years as a coach and executive in the NBA and 13 seasons as a coach at the collegiate level. He has been a part of some of the most historical basketball teams of all time while winning back-to-back NBA Championships with the Detroit Pistons “Bad Boys”, as well as the 1992 “Dream Team.”
He developed his “Servant Leadership” mentality while working as an Assistant Coach under Hall of Fame coaches Chuck Daly, Hubie Brown and Lenny Wilkins.
During his coaching career he has coached some of the world’s best players such as Hall of Famers Isiah Thomas, Joe Dumars, Michael Jordan, Dominique Wilkins, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, David Robinson, Karl Malone, Dennis Rodman and Ben Simmons.
Coach Brendan Suhr has a passion for developing effective leaders. His often used term “I don’t coach players, I coach people” is a testament to his authenticity and personable approach in teaching and leadership.
Today Coach Suhr serves as the President of Coaching U, the host of the Coaching U podcast, and works with hundreds of coaches in all sports as a coach of coaches.
