Coach Kelly Kennedy: Broken to Bold--her new book explores the journey of shame to redemption
Play • 57 min

Kelly Kennedy climbed the coaching ladder faster than her wildest dreams could ever imagine.  Going from a Division III assistant to the NCAA Div. 1 bench at power conference schools led to her lifelong dream of becoming a  head coach when Mike Thomas offered her a chance to become the University of Akron head coach. But, her dream soon became a nightmare when four years later she was fired by the new AD after the losses piled up. Thinking herself a failure for many years, Kennedy explores the negative self talk, emotional baggage of our youths and empty promises of money and career.  When she found her true head coach, God, after being inspired at a business conference...she decided to pen this book to help coaches and professionals evaluate where they find their worth.  Kelly's three daughters and husband Todd live in Akron, OH now and I have the pleasure of teaching the talented, intelligent and joyful oldest daughter Molly.  Through listening, I think you will find  that Kelly Kennedy is certainly not a failure---she a winner in every way.  It is ok to lose, but it's not okay to listen to our insecurities that lie to us each day.
