"Tip final tip when you're considering katie piece elect and kindle villa. What your value is. How much do you feel you bring the table. And how much do you think you should be compensated for that. If you're just looking for an avenue to just publish 'cause you love the craft of writing this might be for you but if you're the type of person that doesn't really want to grind it out for say twenty five cents for every purchase or twenty two cents There's also the risk versus reward because katie p select is a proven commodity. Many people have made a lucrative living going to kdp select and some continue to do that whereas some people don't even katie piece left at all they just do it on their own and the wide but we know the proven we.

"This is america sports talk show sports byline usa. Here's ron steve. Lavin is with us on sports byline. Usa and Steve i understand. You had a chance to go back into coaching. But you decided not to take the opportunity. And i was just wondering. Did you feel you need more time away from the game. Were you happy with your television work where you're looking for a different type of challenge. Well it was. A combination was the north carolina state position in april of two thousand and six and i knew there. Ethnic director well lee fowler. He had formerly been the head of the ncwa selection committee. And it was a crossroads for me where i was just getting established and comfortable with being a broadcaster. I'd spent at that point. Two full seasons with brent musburger and felt the had my broadcasting legs and had a second career off and running and yet i was very tempted by north carolina state because it has all the elements are aspects of coach. Looks for great tradition to national championships They're a great league. The acc a very fertile recruiting ground in terms of that region of the country rate facilities unlimited resources in terms of dollars. the ability to attract a great assistant a coaching corps So it was something that took me about a week and i turn to a lot of mentor. Spent time on the phone with mother and father. Obviously a lot of long walks With my wife. Mary ann gene. Katie pete. Newell jay right at villanova. Tom izzo michigan state and most importantly and most influential was john wooden and we had a lot of talks and ultimately it's something you gotta sleep on prey on and i really felt At that particular crossroads intersection of my life I wanted to return Abc an espn and they stepped up with a new six-year contract and i wasn't trying to leverage that My agent wasn't even involved It was just the first coaching opportunity. That came along That i really grappled with in terms of possibly returning and And i haven't looked back since i'm really enjoying what i'm doing as a broadcaster. Let's talk about the coach wooden for a moment. One of the early parts of my career was at the nc double a final four. That was down in los angeles. And i was a young sportscaster at that time. And after he had had met the press in the press conference i kind of cornered him and did a quick interview with him out in the hallway. And i'll never forget one thing he said to me he goes looking at the stat sheet and he looked at the stats and he was looking at the turnovers. And he said you know ron turnovers basketball likes walks in baseball. They'll kill you every time. I mean it was just it was just something that was seared in my memory over the years and i don't know how to put my finger. I mean there's a lot of great things that you can say about coach wooden but i think consistency is the thing that comes to my mind. If i had to pick one word for him it would be consistency. What would that one word be from you. I'd say compassion but consistency clearly was one of the key elements in his ability to get his teams to achieve at a high level. As a matter of fact He was a big proponent of making sure that his teams never played in the peaks or valleys emotionally. One of them very even keeled like a great poker player. You think of a jamaal wilkes He was very even keeled. Luau cinder a very even keel. Didn't want a lot of adulation or celebration when things were going well and he didn't want a lot of dejection or wasted energy on being down when things weren't going well a matter of fact he fought that at the end of games. What is team left the floor. He he didn't want people to be able to tell if they hadn't attended the game just walked in weather. The team had won or lost. I think that's a big part of why they were able to win. Seven consecutive titles eighty eight straight wins and ten championships in twelve years and have such a dominant run. But what's interesting. Is you know coach. Wooden didn't win that first national championship until he had been on the job at ucla. Fifteen or sixteen years and being in a tough league going against more of harsh minute. Ralph miller and newell and all the other great coaches. The he faced is where he really honed his craft and became a master and then once he got it right. He was pretty tough to beat from that point forward. You know what was interesting. And i use the word consistency after i had thought about it for a long period of time During the years that he was their society was changing. There was upheaval down in los angeles the personalities that came in you mentioned about kareem abdul-jabbar. Bill walton who was somewhat of a radical. And then you had you know. The guys that came out of the the black community and everything and yet they. They knew that the way coach wooden was no matter what the situation was. They could count on one something being consistent and i really think that that was the foundation for that long run of success that consistency on his part. You're right and if you go back within that consistency holding onto the values that he felt a were enduring would serve his players. Well not just in sports but in life These were universals That our fundamentals of achievement fundamentals of lean. A good life. You go back to South bend central high school in the forties Indiana state then. Ucla in the late forties fifties sixties and seventies so that's parts of what four decades parts of five decades and but again. His teaching is universal. But there's a lot of flexibility in there as well to be able to hold onto those values with how you present them. How you reach your students are your pupils is really a critical aspect of whether or not you're going to be successful and continue inspire and motivate young people to maximize their their abilities. Their gifts their talents. And i think that's what people underestimate With coach wooden as though he believed held onto strong values. There was a lot of flexibility and a very creative thinker and in terms of how he matter of fact he took psychology classes us at ucla. He would sit in on those classes and be able to integrate some of that into his teaching also learned from other coaches. He is the only person of course to be inducted into the basketball hall of fame. Not only as a player but also as a coach. Let me switch gears. I've always been interested in strategy coaches put forth during the course of a game. Do you remember a game. An important game in which you did something strategy wise that shut the door on the game that really closed it out and created the victory. Yeah i think Their games go back as a coach. Both where you cost your team and also where you helped your team. And then there's a lot of games in between where there wasn't one defining moment or particular adjustment That had an effect on the game one way or the other But one instance would-be. We played michigan in the second round of the ncaa tournament when they had tractor trailers matter of fact. Was the last time the michigan wolverines were in the nc double a. tournament and we lost our center. Come down the stretch. Gilani mccoy for the season so we are a little undersized we. Jr henderson. chris johnson. Toby bailey a baron. Davis and earl watson were freshmen. Guards barron early in that game actually tore his acl in only able to play a limited amount of time. But in that game. Because we're facing a player of great size kind of a baby shaquille o'neal and tractor trailer. We decided to invert our offense. Bring our big way from the basket. We posted up our guards more often. We wanted to get tractor out from under the basket where he'd have chase. A jared henderson was highly skilled a six eight six nine Four men who was comfortable playing on the perimeter and his ability to play make and drive off of a slower lumbersome Tractor trailer was able to create. A lot of offense force also wore down tractor trailer Because he was chasing henderson around the perimeter where he preferred set up like a big bear in the basket area so a number of aspects. They're both offensively and defensively. And then in that game defensively. We did a little bit of a gamble. But we're gonna triple team tractor. Every time he caught it just like bs on honey like a venus fly trap collapsed around him and we are fortunate to michigan. Didn't shoot the ball very well with the open. Looks they did get and we were quick enough to collapse to the post and then scrambled backout contest. Jump shots but i'd say inverting our offense in that second round game against michigan Was something strategically. That really helped us on the flip. Side i think i cost our team. A first round loss detroit We had the youngest team in school history of the youngest team in the country at that time twelve. Freshmen and sophomores. And this is when baron and earl were now sophomores Dang troll me so drawn rush. Matt barnes were freshmen ray. Young as well and in that game I should have played some zone defense. And i hadn't brought along zone defense over the course the year enough to where i was confident in implementing it in that game and i think it cost us because detroit had very quick small team. They were able to get around his dribble penetrate getting fouled trouble. They only score. I think two or three field goals in the second half of the hoosier dome in this first round. nc double a. tournament upset but they're able to get to the foul line twenty plus times now from that experience. What i learned was to be sure in the next three years we made runs deep into the tournament into the second weekend of play and we utilized a match up zone that i brought along over the course of the year. And have confidence to you. So you learn from those setbacks. Going back to coach wooden. He was fifty three years old when he won his first national championship. He coached games to get to that point where he finally won one and i think the key is being a willing student being able to learn and again. That goes back to flexibility. Not being stubborn or hard headed too prideful. Or let your ego get involved. You can learn from your opponent you can learn from your failures and sounds corny. A cliche going back to mr rogers sesame street but that's really how we move forward and we become wiser and have a better perspective as a result. What are you know about yourself. Now steve that you didn't know when you were coaching. I mean i'm you move beyond coaching. Ucla you've been in broadcasting now and i know you to be a reflective type of person that says you know my past experiences are going to help me in the future. What have you learned. I'd say most importantly in life It's mentors Going back to your mother and father. I was fortunate to have incredible teachers and parents in the home been married. Fifty seven years My father was a teacher over the barrett dominican college of marin san diego state cal berkeley high school My mother raised six. Children has a phd in raising children but also after raising all of us went back and got her degree in art history at dominican and then went to work for eighteen years. Help pay for college education southern pacific and potala equitable here in san francisco so we had incredible parents but then going back to high school coaches a certain youth league coaches A high school counselor teacher college professor a people invested in your career saw potential in you. john wooden gene. Eighty of bob knight. Mike shasta jerry tarquini and my college coach kevin wilson high school coach hayward a now brent musburger just a number of people that help us get to particular stage in our life and so any success that we have any values The we try and exhibit are result of having great teachers or mentors. And so i'd say that's probably the most important aspect when i look at the arca my career. The last twenty years in coaching broadcasting is that were only as good as the people around us and the people that invested in us and shared and willing to give their time and saw some potential in you. Bring you along or nudge in the right direction. We only have a couple of minutes left but I think marin county was always kinda the butt of jokes on the late night television shows about the hot tubs and the weed and everything. But you know out of that county came yourself successful basketball coach and a very successful football coach. In p carol. And huey lewis huey lewis robin williams right of course buddy. Bianca lana shortstop. The city royals world series team coached by why herzog. You guys ever become a good. I mean i know the county. I lived there. It's a good question so beautiful right with the terrain is like like being raised and club. Med i think you have a favorite memory about growing up in. Marin i'd say being a part of state championship high school team that won fifty six. Straight game steve. Kennel orders getting inducted into the santa clara hall of fame this week. I was a great team. Jimmy cy dan hunt doug dibley craig nelson one of my best friends so a being part of a team that won fifty six fifty eight straight games won back to back state titles. I think that really was the inspiration for pursuing a career in coaching which then set up the career in broadcasting and Someone once said that And you'd agree with this that We get to work in the toy department of life and get paid for. It's a pretty good gig and so you give thanks. You're grateful you count your blessings on a daily basis. Any regrets at all. Oh i'm sure you go back. And there's all types of intersections or crossroads in particular games or relationships with particular players You know where you know. You could have done a better job or you take on Just like a good parent does The responsibility For something you could have done better to help a young person. But in the grand scheme in terms of the stages and ages my life. I really consider myself grateful how my mother and father be up here on the barrier this week visiting them and to been able to work at the highest level of coaching at purdue and ucla and now broadcasting abc an espn Someone told me bob barker. The price is right. Let's make a deal coming out. Chapman college envisioned to player. This would be your life over the next twenty years. You'd say i'll take it. I'll take that life you know. Well i wanna thank you very much. I hope you'll make a habit anytime you're here in the bay area to come back in and sit in the chair because i know people are listening across the country and around the world to the show are going to come away saying you know. I learned something about college basketball. You set it in a very human way. And i think that that's the difference between broadcasting and communicating. and you've communicated very well steve. Well i'll tell you. I always enjoy being a part of your show and i grew up as we discussed in the bay area. And so maybe in some way grown up in that environment around great broadcasters such as yourself That's one of the reasons why i'm doing okay as a broadcast analyst.
