This week, I’m excited to be joined today by Coach Brian Eskildsen. Coach Eskildsen is a 13-year coaching veteran in NCAA Division I basketball, having spent his entire career working at high-level academic institutions that enjoyed success, including Rice, Stanford and Harvard.

Before starting at Georgia Tech, he helped lead Harvard to three Ivy League championships, a trip to the NCAA tournament in 2015 and NIT berths in 2018 and 2019.

Coach Eskildsen is passionate about having an impact on his players both on and off the court and will share some very practical tools that could be used by coaches at any level.
