All I needed to riff on my esteemed life coaching profession is to see some of the public’s reaction to NFL Draft prospect Dez Bryant hiring a life coach. So often in social situations I hear people remark that those who hire coaches must not have parents or friends. They are so, so off the mark.

Thanks to Miami Herald writer Armando Salguero for his insightful piece on Bryant. Some of that and more in today’s Game Plan: Parents As Life Coaches? Not Necessarily.
