Baylor's Dave Aranda Driven By Culture, Not Scheme In Year 3 - Inside The Bears on Sports Illustrated: News, Analysis, and More
Dave Aranda recently said in an interview that he is more into the culture of coaching rather than schematics.
Aranda, who enters his third season in Waco, majored in Philosophy at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks. He said one of his influences was Frosty Westering, a Hall of Fame coach who often would preach of making every moment count and celebrating a person's accomplishments rather than a player's achievements.
He also studied religion and sports psychology to better understand a player's personal struggles. In return, it led to a style of coaching most of college football has yet to see work at the highest level.
