During this period of intense racial discord in America, The Upside has looked at some of the black leaders in the community of sports to give us their perspective on these historic events effecting every corner of our nation. Today we welcome Pittsburgh Head Coach Jeff Capel and Marquette Head Coach Steve Wojciechoski.
They were both teammates and later co-workers on the staff of Mike Krzyzewski at Duke. In the third installment of our series ‘Race in Sports’ University of Pittsburgh head coach Jeff Capel and Marquette head coach Steve Wojciechowski join Adam.
These two friends witnessed through their careers the same situations while looking through different lenses. Today we get their unique perspective on racial injustice and how it’s impacted the world of basketball.
This is the the third part in a series of discussions we’ll have about the racial issues we’re facing in this country; make sure to subscribe to The Upside podcast for future episodes. Select interviews are also available on YouTube.
