Bill Kurich is in his tenth season at Webster University in St. Louis. What he’s done there is nothing short of amazing. I first became aware of Webster when they were taking on some really solid Mark Kingston-led Illinois State teams in back-to-back seasons. Although they lost both games, this D3 school from St. Louis didn’t look intimated at all and hung in there in both contests right to the end. Although still a very young guy, Coach Kurich has earned a ton of respect from his fellow coaches because of what he’s accomplished consistently in the last decade.
In this episode we talk extensively about being creative in utilizing limited program resources, the difference between the high school and travel ball experience, and fundraising.
Coach Kurich also talks about the work/life balance, the great benefit of field turf for any program, and loyalty.
