Leadership, Football, Tactics and Coaching

LANGUAGE WARNING! This episode is NOT safe for work! Uncle Dan likes Jack Daniels and he’s had a little bit to drink so we’re gonna drag some war stories out of him and have a good time. Dan was one of Mike’s team leaders on SWAT when he first joined the team. He’s also a football coach for his son, and it turns out there’s quite a bit of crossover between the two in terms of leadership and tactics. As the alcohol level rises, you’ll get to hear a little bit about how Dan has shaped the training culture in his agency and what he’s learned along the way. Good times!

    Great episode fellas. It is nice to see we are all dealing with the same kind of hurdles in training our guys. I am a 25+ year LE veteran (SWAT, gamgs, patrol etc) and I also get these same hurdles with guys bitching about training being too hard or the “3s” you refer to not liking me pointing out that the stupid shirt they wear to training and all the other stupid cliche shit they wear and have mean nothing when it looks like they wish they were paid by the damn pound.

    Keep preaching my ddues. Maybe the best episode yet

    Also- just got my first Riteon RDO. Cant wait to try it out.
