Providence AD Driscoll Discusses Leadership, Life Coaches

In conjunction with our partners at D1.ticker, Turnkey Search is pleased to present “1.Question”, an audio feature in D1.ticker’s daily email newsletter. “1.Question” features brief interviews with high level collegiate athletic administrators.

Providence AD Bob Driscoll has led the Friars for the past 15+ years. Given the average tenure of an AD these days is around a third of that length, 1.Q talked to Driscoll about how he stays fresh on the leadership front. Listen how he explains “a conversation of possibilities”, and the importance of surrounding yourself with people from whom you can always learn something. Understanding risk, honesty with head coach hires that aren’t working out, and more round out today’s episode.
