Chico State Approach to Coaching "Positive"

Apr 4, 2013 1:10 AM

Anita Barker say she was shocked when she saw the video of Mike Rice verbally and physically attacking his players. She says, "It is shocking. An institution doesn't want to see their folks in leadership acting like that towards students." She says the athletes at Chico State are encouraged to be students first, athletes second. Head basketball coach Greg Clink says he prefers to use positive encouragement to motivate his players, and they agree. Rashad Parker says "He (Clink) loves us, we love him, it's never negative." Player Amir Carraway agrees. He says, "I know they're trying to get me better. I know what happened at Rutgers. We don't have that here."
