For over a decade, Urban Meyer has established himself as one of the elite coaches in the annals of his sport, with three national championships and a cumulative record of 142 wins and only 26 losses. But sheer statistics are not the measure of his true accomplishment, nor do they speak to his own extraordinary journey.
In Above the Line: Lessons in Leadership and Life from a Championship Season (Penguin Press; October 27, 2015), Meyer shares the heart of what he knows about how to instill core values in teams and lead them to great outcomes.
Co-author of “Above the Line” is Wayne Coffey , award-winning sportswriter for the New York Daily News, is the author of three New York Times bestsellers, including The Closer (with Mariano Rivera) and Wherever I Wind Up (with R. A. Dickey).
Urban Meyer is the head football coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes. In 2014, he led the Buckeyes to their first Big Ten Conference title under his tenure as well as the program’s eighth national championship. Meyer served as the head coach of the Bowling Green Falcons from 2001 to 2002, the Utah Utes from 2003 to 2004, and the Florida Gators from 2005 to 2010. He is one of only two coaches to win a National Championship at two different schools.
