ClutchTimeout | Steve Lavin | Leading From Inside the Huddle

Inside the huddle with one of college basketball’s finest, Steve Lavin. We hear stories from Lavin on his days coaching The UCLA Bruins and St. Johns University to being an analyst with Fox Sports and CBS Turner. In this episode, Steve Lavin and host of the ClutchTimeout podcast series, Alan Major, provide insights and glimpses about what leading a winning program on and off the court looks like.

Alan and Steve talk about their days coaching basketball together at Purdue, loving the game, the state of college basketball, and leadership on and off the court. What an absolute privilege to feature Steve Lavin on this podcast. We are grateful for his time, wisdom, and leadership stories.
