University of Miami men's basketball coach Jim Larranaga loves to read management books such as Stephen Covey's "Seven Habits of Highly Effective People," from which he regularly quotes to his players. That's led Larranaga to adopt a meticulous, data-driven training style underpinned by a carefully groomed and unusually structured coaching team. His structure "provides for a highly integrated coaching style that gives the team's leaders a greater view into the skills and weaknesses of more players," writes Jena McGregor.
