Miami University in Oxford, Ohio is recognized for its beauty, highlighted by the red brick throughout its grounds. Poet Robert Frost even called it "the prettiest campus ever there was." It has a nationally acclaimed business school, and it has spent the last decade providing more CEOs of Fortune 500 companies with undergraduate Miami Ohio degrees than any other.

Yet, the best kept secret for those inside the Miami Ohio family is The Cradle of Coaches, and the astounding track record over the last century of producing some of the greatest coaches, managers, and sports executives in sports history.

In Red Brick Magic: Sean McVay, John Harbaugh and Miami University’s Cradle of Coaches, Miami Ohio alum and pioneering sports journalist Terence Moore explores this unparalleled sports leadership legacy, from Weeb Ewbank, Paul Brown, Ara Parseghian, and Bo Schembechler to John McVay, John Harbaugh, Sean McVay, and everyone in between.

Highlighted by Sean McVay’s Super Bowl LVI win with the Los Angeles Rams – the record fourth NFL championship captured by a team coached by a Miami Ohio alum – Moore tells the inside story of how a mid-major sports school in the Mid-American Conference has evolved into an industry trailblazer, and a true powerhouse when it comes to producing leaders and thinkers helping shape the past, present, and future of the sports world.
