The Great Coaches

Our Great Coach on this episode is basketball coach, Jackie Carson. Jackie Carson is the Head Coach of the Furman University Women's Basketball team.  She also played there as a student athlete, and still hold the conference record for most free throws made. In 1999 she was honored as Furman’s Female Athlete of the Year and in 2009 she became on the third player in the programs history to have their jersey retired. She started her coaching career in 2003, progressing through Assistant Coaching Positions at Bucknell and Madison which included postseason appearances at the 2007 and 2010 NCAA tournaments. In 2010, she returned to Furman as the 9th Head Coach in the college’s history. Across her 11 seasons leading the team they have earned four postseason berths and 2 Women’s National Invitational Tournament appearances. In 2014 she recognised for her contribution to the sport by being awarded Conference Coach of the Year. Key topics she discusses with us include: As a woman, female coaches have to be better than the males going for the same job, and importantly show why they're better. Offers advice on dealing with negative self-talk and how some of the things you say in your head, you would never say out loud to anyone else.  She believes that that winning is a byproduct of the standards and values within the team. Wants to leave a legacy, where people learn that you can be a mom that works, be a black female that is successful and, you can do whatever it is that people say that you can't do. If you would like to send us any feedback or if you know a great coach, who has a unique story to share, then we would love to hear from you, please contact us at thegreatcoachespodcast@gmail.com
