I spent about an hour in the office of Goose Creek (SC) HS head coach Chuck Reedy today ... Had a blast.
As many of you know, he spent 11 years at Clemson. Also was the head coach at Baylor.
He shared a ton of old stories with myself and Gerry Hamilton, my co-worker.
A few things ....
-Looking back, he knew getting Herschel Walker would be a huge uphill battle. But he says he actually felt fairly good about landing him at times.
-Seemed to like working with both Charley Pell and Danny Ford ... Only a year with Pell, but talked about how he had an incredible ability to know more about each position than the position coaches. He was that smart.
-Still follows the Tigers, but usually just watches the games on TV.
The best story ....
When Reedy was at Clemson, at one time his daughter actually lived in Gainesville, Fla., for a bit back in the 1980s. His daughter attended Oak Hall School (same school as the kids of Roger Maris)
When Chuck was in town once, his daughter told him she had a friend that wanted to get into coaching.
She asked if he would talk to him about coaching.
He did. And the kid had an usual name that Reedy would never forgot.
The kid's name ... Will Muschamp.
