Coaching clinic in Florida

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- I'm spending the next couple of days -- i.e., Monday and Tuesday -- here on the Florida campus, and not because I'm starting graduate school. Rather, I'm speaking at an annual coaching clinic organized by Florida associate head coach Larry Shyatt. It should be both fun and educational. I'm glad I'm involved.

Here's the rundown of Monday speakers:

9:15: Brad Stevens
10:30: Del Harris
12:00: Me
1:45: Jeremy Foley
2:30: Jamie Dixon, Shaka Smart, Matthew Driscoll
4:00: Buzz Williams
5:15: Rick Turk
6:30: LuAnn Humphrey
7:45: Billy Donovan

Coaches scheduled to speak Tuesday include Matt Painter, Sean Miller, Travis Ford, Scott Duncan, Mike Hopkins, Brendan Suhr, and Kevin Eastman. I'll try my best to Tweet anything interesting. So make sure you're following me at this link.

Clinic to benefit former Messiah College coach

A group of coaches -- including Pitt's Jamie Dixon and Xavier's Sean Miller -- will host a coaching clinic Oct. 16 at La Roche College in Pittsburgh. It's a rare midweek clinic on the Thursday night before colleges start practice, and all proceeds from the event will go towards the Dave Manzer Heart Fund.

Who is Dave Manzer?

He's the former head coach at Messiah College who is in a Milwaukee hospital awaiting a heart transplant. Meantime, his wife Kathy and three children -- Andrea (20), Erica (16), and Aaron (6) -- are left without a husband and father healthy enough to earn a living, meaning though times are tough for much of the country it's probably fair to assume most of our problems pale in comparison to the ones with which the Manzer family is dealing.

The cost of the event is $20.

For more information email Scott Lang at scott.lang@laroche.edu.

But here are the basics ...
