Q: How do you balance the demands of football and family? How do you get used to new towns when you move or travel?

LB: My son was in three high schools. The first thing we do is get involved with church and Bible study. That’s been my rock and foundation. The people there don’t care about what happens on Saturdays.

Q: If you were going to offer advice to someone who’s new to the coaching life, what tips would you offer?

ST: If I was talking to a young woman who’d just married a football coach, I’d tell her to get involved in your church, your kids’ school, your community. You’re going to have a lot of time on your hands.
