My one and only...Coach

For those of you who don't know this is Coach.

What you also may not know is that he is a wildly talented, freakishly athletic, endlessly patient, tirelessly hard working, infinitely loving, and an insane smarty pants.
Can you tell I kinda like this guy?
This year has been a tough busy year for Coach and the men of the BYU Men's Volleyball team.
The Cougars got a rocky start to there season by losing their previous coach. After that Rob was brought on as the interim head coach. Seeing that it was august already, Coach and the team didn't have much time to prepare for their quickly approaching season.
This resulted in the last year being a crazy trial by fire whirlwind of 70 hour work weeks, lots of sleepless nights, tons of team dinners, and rob trying to define the kind of coach he wants to be.
It was hard and I am so proud of Rob and the team for their efforts and success this past year finishing #2 in the country with 20-7 record only to be beat by the team who took it all the way to the national championship.
Coach went above and beyond the call of duty to make the BYU men's volleyball team the best they could be.
As many of you know he was up for the permanent head coaching position and did not get the job. Crazy right? How could they not want the guy I just described?
At first I was really upset...then I was pretty pissed off...then I was able to be rational and see that the Lord was just sending us down a different path. And that's OK.
So as of now Rob is the assistant to a wonderful head coach and an amazingly talented team at a university we're still proud to call home.
Coach also decided to go back to school. So a week later he took the GMAT and aced it, the little stinker.
All in all we have no idea where life is taking us now but we're excited for a new adventure...and we couldn't be more grateful for the experience we had this last year and the group of players, families, coaches, and volunteers we had the privilege to know better.
So I guess we'll keep you posted on our next move and in the mean time keep supporting the BYU MVB and my sweet hubby...Coach.

Love you babe...
