BYF EP 41: BLM COACHES EDITION

Whats up Footy fans! I’m back with another BLM special edition, I’m bringing you new topics and debates needed to be discussed on the culture in this country. Hear the coaches perspective on the struggles of being black coaching in America, how they’ve overcome obstacles to make a difference and some jaw dropping stories on the treatment of some of the top blacks in the country. An inspiring episode that I look forward to sharing. Stay tuned!

This is something we all can learn from. The education never stops! ✊🏿 Listen to us talk about who we think should be candidates for MLS head coaching jobs, what needs to change within the system and what the younger generation needs to do to use their voice and set themselves up for post career.  

You also get unique insight from past player relationships, authentic stories and education.
