Coach Forward is an interview-style podcast hosted by Jason Mejeur (Coach J), accomplished Coach, Mentor, and Founder/CEO at MaxOne.
Today, I'm excited to be joined by Coach Charles Huff. Charles Huff was named Marshall's head football coach in January of 2021.
An elite recruiter and developer of talent, Huff’s proven track record bolstered head coach Nick Saban’s staff for the 2019 and 2020 seasons.
In his inaugural season in Tuscaloosa, Huff helped Najee Harris become a consensus All-American who led the nation in total touchdowns (30), rushing touchdowns (26) and points (180).
He boasts 16 years of coaching experience on both the NFL and college levels with stops at Penn State (2014-17), Western Michigan (2013), the Buffalo Bills (2012), Vanderbilt (2011), Hampton (2010), Maryland (2009) and Tennessee State (2006-08).
He recruited and developed one of the game’s most electrifying players in running back Saquon Barkley.
I specifically enjoyed our conversation about how he balances the motivation of individual players with the motivation of the whole team. Half-way through the episode we talk about this innovative approach that he took away from his time with Coach Saban at Alabama.
