Editor's Note: Tunde Agboke is a two-year member of the Red Foxes coaching staff. Responsible for the defensive line, he has seen five players earn All-Pioneer Football League honors during his short time in Poughkeepsie. Agboke's defensive line helped Marist rank first out of 121 FCS programs in Red Zone defense this past season and sixth in total defense in the 2011 season.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - I was honored to have had the opportunity to participate in the NFL-NCAA Coaches Academy in Charlotte, N.C. on Feb. 17-19.

I was one of 30 NCAA position coaches from across the nation to attend. Along with the coaches, there was also a group of 30 current/former NFL players who have ambitions of pursuing a coaching career.  All of us were selected on the basis of having the aspirations and potential to become future head football coaches.

This unique opportunity gave me a chance to learn more about different coaching styles, strategies and philosophies from some of the top NFL and college coaches in the country. The academy's sessions also included instruction from NFL insiders, college administrators, and business leaders. The topics included how to build a personal and professional brand, managing budgets, successful networking, media messaging, coaching contracts, building relationships in college, effective leadership, understanding the academic landscape and the interview process.

The entire event was a first-class operation, especially considering this was only the second year the academy has been held. From the first session to the last, it was an amazing experience. I feel that attending the academy is a worthwhile experience for any coach who is looking to enrich his base of knowledge.
