Coach Matt Doherty has faced challenges, adversity, and betrayal on the court and off. This book takes you on his journey, allowing you to see true leadership in action. Each chapter is filled with the highs and the lows of a life focused on achieving his dreams. From his first “sale” in convincing his parents that a summer job would not serve him nearly as well as a summer at a basketball camp to the lows of finding out who your true friends are, Coach Doherty walks you through it with brutal honesty and vulnerability.
Throughout the book, Coach Doherty will share that there is no easy road to leadership. It is a long and winding road with many unexpected plot twists, both good and bad. But at the end of it, you will find a leader that in his suffering, is still dedicated enough to figure out the tough answers and share them with his followers.
“When Matt Doherty became the head coach at the University of Notre Dame, he gave me a chance to leave an impression. He challenged me. He pushed me. His passion inspired me. His drive and energy made me want to run through walls for him and my team. That is what leadership is all about to me.”
- Jimmy Dillon, 2000 captain of Notre Dame basketball team and current Director of Hoops 24-7 (Phil. PA)
