There are moments in our lives if we take opportunities that we have to stop and say, “wow, is this really happening?” Todays Unscripted is with former Player, Coach and Leader and author of the new book “Rebound: From Pain to Passion – Leadership Lessons Learned,” Matt Doherty.

Matt Doherty played and coached basketball at the University of North Carolina . He started on the 1982 National Championship team with NBA greats Michael Jordan & James Worthy. The program was led by legendary coach Dean Smith. Matt went on to coach college basketball. He was the head coach at Notre Dame before taking over the UNC program. He led the Tar Heels to the 2001 regular season ACC Championship while being named AP National Coach of the Year.

Matt is now a consultant while broadcasting games for the ACC Network. Since his time at UNC, Coach Doherty worked as the head coach at FAU and SMU in addition to working at ESPN, the Indiana Pacers and the Atlantic 10 Conference.

Matt is married to Kelly and has two children, Tucker and Hattie. They reside in Mooresville, NC.

In this episode, we discuss leadership, coaching and so much more. Most importantly we discuss his new book, “Rebound: From Pain to Passion – Leadership Lessons Learned.” I learned so much from this episode and the lessons that Coach has learned over the years. This is a story of finding yourself, forgiveness, grace and making strength from moments in our lives. I am better today for having this opportunity to speak to Coach today.
