Get ready for a great conversation with Neill Collins, head coach of the Tampa Bay Rowdies of the USL Championship. We’re going to talk about his transition from a being a player one day, and the head coach the next. So there’s a lot of learning in this for those of you who are still playing, but also you who wonder about life as a coach in the professional game.

Neill has an extensive playing career that includes stints in Sunderland, Wolves, Leeds United, and Sheffield United before coming to the US and Tampa Bay in 2016. I had the pleasure to meet Neill in 2018 only weeks after he took over as head coach, and observed a training session where I was impressed by his coaching.

Listen to this episode if you are curious about how the life of a head coach at the professional level is, and to get some great tips for young and ambitious coaches.
