After I had worked for a company that provided information for lawyers and other professionals, I saw an opportunity to publish a sports book that would appeal to professional people. Patrick McCaskley agreed with me and he followed a book model that would satisfy people who were looking for a good solid history of the ten coaches we covered in Pillars of the NFL: Coaches Who Won Three or More Championships. We were trying to capture the football essence of these great men and presented their early football lives, their coaching careers, their contribution to the game and their football timelines. It was a very difficult project. For some coaches, there was more than enough books and other sources, but for others it was a struggle. We stocked the book with end notes to show our sources and for enthusiasts who might want to continue their search for even more information. I think for the real NFL enthusiasts, we have published a real legacy they can own.
So if you want to know the story behind Halas, Chamberlin, Lambeau, Brown, Lombardi, Noll, Ewbank, Gibbs, Walsh, and Belichick--you can pick up Pillars of the NFL.
