Talking Grammer, Ep. 27: UNM Lobos assistant coach Dan McHale

In Episode 27, I catch up with Lobo hoops assistant coach Dan McHale to see what the heck college basketball coaches who aren’t allowed to be on the road recruiting or in the office due to coronavirus concerns are doing this time of year. As it turns out, they’re still busy as ever.

Dan walks us through what he’s doing daily now, his college basketball coaching journey since being a college freshman team manager at Kentucky to growing up in the sport as a part of the highly-successful Rick Pitino coaching tree, to being a head coach by the age of 35 and what he’s learned along the way he hopes to be using now to help the continued rebuilding of the Lobo basketball program under head coach Paul Weir.

What is the staff doing now in terms of recruiting and staying touch with current players? And some thoughts about defense, pressing and Bayron Matos for next year’s Lobos season.
