Coach Mac is by far the best coach I’ve probably ever had throughout my football career… He’s a true educator; he really cares about the men he coaches…
Founder of Authority Football, QB Coach
I’m Coach Mac, a former high school English and Journalism teacher and head high school and collegiate football coach for over a decade. I dedicated my life to serving and developing the boys of my community, but in doing so, I neglected the only boys that really mattered — my own. So I left my career as a coach and an educator so I could rewrite our life and our family could live life on our own terms. To me, failure as a football coach is inevitable, but failure as a father is unthinkable. So in 2011, I founded Authority Football to serve a need that athletes everywhere have which is affordable, professional, quality coaching to teach them not just the “what” but to explain the “why” and teach the “how”. And that has allowed me to do the thing I love the most in this world, coaching football, so that I can be with the ones I love the most in this world, my wife and sons.
One thing important to know about me is that I’m one of the most competitive people you’ll ever meet, and my teams and staffs are filled with the most competitive athletes and coaches you’ll ever meet. However, as counterintuitive as it may seem, we do not care about winning. We care about the process; we care about character; we care about commitment; and we create competence.
You see, you can have results without excellence, and you can have excellence without results, but in both cases, you won’t have either for long. And we are committed to excellence first, regardless of the cost. Excellence only, regardless of the cost. And this has created the most rewarding profession I have ever had, which is as the founder of Authority Football. And I have a dedicated staff of men who think the same way. Men who are dedicated to the process, dedicated to excellence above all things, and dedicated to the athletes that we train. We love to win – but we don’t work to win games; we work to win the day; we work to win the play; we work to win the rep; we work to win the step. “Results” are exactly that, results – the inevitable outcome of performance. We focus on performance, across all elements of our lives.
