About this title

Synopsis:

This book is about a very successful and outspoken football coach, Jerry Glanville.

From Publishers Weekly:

As head coach of the Houston Oilers, Glanville staged an unusual publicity stunt: at out-of-town games he would leave tickets at the box office in the name of a local celebrity, past or present--Elvis Presley in Memphis, James Dean in Indianapolis, Ind., Loni Anderson in Cincinnati, Ohio. But that is the one entertaining story in this banal football autobiography, written with freelance sportswriter Miller. Glanville began his career coaching high school teams, moved up to the college ranks, got to the pros in 1974 and served 10 years as an assistant coach in Detroit, Atlanta, Buffalo, N.Y., and Houston. Named Oiler head coach in late 1985, he took the team to the playoffs three times before returning to the Atlanta Falcons as head coach. He favors a hard-hitting game, which has embroiled him in feuds with fellow coaches Chuck Noll and Sam Wyche, whom he discusses here along with players he likes and dislikes. Photos not seen by PW.
