Dave is one of my favorite people to talk coaching with and the first one I asked to be a guest on the Efficient Coach podcast. He has a background playing and coaching soccer, starting his MLS coaching career in Kansas City before spending nine years with the Seattle Sounders. Three years ago he made the leap to basketball and became the High Performance Director of the Orlando Magic. 

Whenever I sit down with Dave there’s always great insights to be had, and this time is no different. Our main topic was the similarities between the two sports that Dave know very well, basketball and football (soccer). He talks about how one of the big differences between the MLS and the NBA is the emotional demands on players and coaches in the latter. How having a short time between games is both a curse and a blessing of sorts. In addition he gives great advice to young coaches who are looking to coach professionally.
