One thing is being a great professional, another thing, which is quite hard to master, is to be able to teach others the skills needed to be a great expert in that area. Teaching is a whole new activity that requires a lot of practice to be a great coach.
Yanni Hufnagel (born August 26, 1982) is a professional that achieved both sides of the spectrum. He is a college basketball coach in the U.S. and has already helped quite some college teams. Nowadays, Yanni Hufnagel is the assistant coach of the masculine basketball team of Nevada Wolf Pack. He is achieving great success with the Nevada Wolf team and is training them for the biggest college competitions in the U.S.
Before he ever entered the Nevada team, Yanni Hufnagel was the assistant coach in some other college basketball groups, more notably the California Golden Bears and Vanderbilt Commodores. The professor also made a vital appearance as the secondary trainer of the Harvard Crimson team, one of the most successful ones in the country.
According to the coach, he really enjoys his profession among the teams that he was able to help achieve their best potential in the sport during their days in college, and, if they want, even after that. He sees many young students have a good time and learn a lot about teamwork in the field, lessons that they will use for the rest of their lives.
Most people don’t know the story of the basketball coach. Yanni Hufnagel wasn’t always just prominent in the sport that he teaches today, but he was actually the defenseman of the Pennsylvania State University’s Lacrosse team. He was one of the best members of the group, and they made a lot of achievements for the college during their years playing, but the young student would soon be transferred to another school, where later he would realize his love for basketball.
