    Coach, I’m actually working for an organization on the inside, weirdly enough I want to get back to the basketball side of things (sitting at a desk is getting to me). I know a few assistant coaches but not sure how to phrase it without coming off like someone owes me something or that I just want to use my small relationship with them for gain. I just want a change if that makes sense. I have no ambitions to be a head coach or anything. Just worked for a great player development coach for many years and wanted to get back into it. I work in marketing and have already worked with the video coordinator to do photography in the off season. However, my marketing coworkers don’t really trust me. They’re overly paranoid. What would your opinion be on taking that step?

      You need to develop a relationship with them. Tell the coaches how you watch their workouts and what a great job they do. Try to take them for lunch, get to know them as people, and when it is natural you can tell them exactly what you told me. You miss it and want to get back to doing more. That doesn’t mean you want to do their job. You can lead in by asking what their goals are.
