Earle Bruce has always believed that the lessons learned in football are applicable to life. As head coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes from 1979 to 1987, Coach Bruce used those lessons to lead the team to multiple championships and undefeated seasons. With years of experience under his belt, it’s obvious that Coach Bruce is a great source of wisdom for athletes and non-athletes alike.

 

In Buckeye Wisom: Insight and Inspiration from Coach Earle Bruce (Triumph Books, October 2014), Earle Bruce touches on themes in life and in football: winning and losing, success, and teamwork. He also reflects on his time as assistant coach under Woody Hayes and what it takes to be an outstanding athlete and person. Highlights include:

 

  • Coach Bruce lists The Ten Commandments of Football for high school and college players.
  • Reflections on the assistant coaches who worked for him, including Pete Carroll, Nick Saban and current Buckeyes head coach, Urban Meyer.
  • A look back at November 17, 1987 – the Monday of Michigan week and the day that marked Earle Bruce’s last season as head coach. The team honored his legacy by wearing headbands that said “Earle” during their come-from-behind 23-20 victory against Michigan.
  • Inspiring quotes from Coach Bruce’s favorite leaders, such as Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Woody Hayes and Vince Lombardi.

 

As a mentor of other college football legends and a coach for more than forty years, Earle Bruce shares his humor, passion, wisdom and spirit with college football fans across the country. Buckeye Wisdom: Insight and Inspiration from Coach Earle Bruce is a keepsake every Buckeyes fan should have in their collection.
