From player to Character Coach with Wayne Simien
Wayne Simien came to the Lord his sophomore year at Kansas. The team's Character Coach Randy Beeman, mentored him for the next two years. Wayne went on to win NBA championships with the Miami Heat in 2006. Today, he is back at Kansas University as a student minister and Character Coach for the men's basketball team serving, supporting, and disciplining coaches and athletes for Christ.
Amazing season with the team coming together with COACH BRETT REED
The season 2011-2012 was an outstanding campaign for LeHigh Men's basketball program. Coach Brett Reed decided to allow Nations of Coaches to locate and place a character coach in his program. With this addition to his program, Coach Reed saw some immediate benefits to the overall health of his student athletes. The team came closer together and as a result they maximized their potential on and off the court. With this newly added confidence as a team, LeHigh saw themselves upset a Duke team who many felt would be in the Final Four.
