John Brannen is a rising star in the college basketball coaching ranks. Having just finished his first year at the University of Cincinnati and winning the regular-season American Athletic Conference championship (tournament and NCAA tournament canceled due to COVID-19), John is poised to do great things at a program who has experienced a ton of national success and is considered a storied program. I have been fortunate to work very closely with John since his time as an assistant coach to Anthony Grant at Alabama. After hearing this conversation, I bet you will become a big John Brannen fan as well!

#08: Coach John Brannen – A Realistic & Humble Approach to Winning

Play
Read more

You can spot this man from across the room. Yes, he is tall. But what you wouldn’t be able to observe from his stoic expression, is his humor. 

He is intelligent and he is passionate. After our conversation with him, it was evident that he joined the University of Cincinnati as head basketball coach because he was a good fit. 

He shares how a written (yes folks with paper) letter opened up a door in his colligate career after an abusive experience with a coach. His transfer from Morehead State University to Marshall University was a pivotal moment in his life.

Born and raised in Northern Kentucky, his parents shaped his perception of hard work. He recalls examples of his father’s persistence and his mother burning the midnight oil to ensure that her family and professional life flourished. 

He has faced many challenges as a young coach. He is humble and realistic and faces a monumental challenge as the new coach. Tune in to hear how he intends to attack the new season.

Memphis Head Coach Penny Hardaway has one of the top 3 recruiting classes in NCAA basketball, and says landing James Wiseman, the #1 highschool player in the nation, was what started it all. Penny speaks to what he learned during his first year as a head coach, why studying the great programs and coaches was so important, and why making it to the NCAA Tournament simply isn't enough. He also breaks down the strengths and weaknesses of his incoming freshman (including his own son, Jayden), and explains what he's expecting from his veteran players. Then John Brannen is the new head coach of the Cincinnati Bearcats, and has a definite plan for the program which will feature 7 new players along with returning star Jarron Cumberland. John explains some of his goals, how his coaching style differs from former coach Mick Cronin (who departed for UCLA), and what other teams can expect to see from Cincinnati on the court.
