Andrew Miller, 57, has been at The Post and Courier of Charleston for decades. Because of pandemic-related budget cuts, Miller had to move from his love of sports to the business section where he's had to start from scratch in some ways as a reporter. Miller goes back a long way to the days of Tommy West and Tommy Bowden, and he's full of stories from his time covering Clemson on a full-time basis. In the summer of 2003 at Bowden's media golf outing, Miller was planning to be in the featured group with the head coach. He was irritated when sports information director Tim Bourret asked him for a huge favor: "Can you play not with Tommy but with our new receivers coach instead?" That coach was Dabo Swinney. "I didn't get in five words the entire round," Miller said of getting to know the man who'd be the Tigers' head coach five years later. Miller reflects on how the changing nature of media access has made it harder for reporters to develop relationships with the people they cover. He also looks back to close, personal relationships he's had with various figures including Bowden, Reggie Herring, Willie Simmons, Monte Lee and others.

iTunes Stitcher Google Spotify During this episode of Ahead of the Curve, I interviewed Monte Lee, Head Coach of Baseball at Clemson University in Clemson, South Carolina. Coach Lee shares his passion for wanting to become a coach from a young age, the methods he uses to communicate with his team players and staff, how he goes about designing practices, and the importance of players being intentional with their pitching and hitting. Episode Highlights: What are the main reasons that Monte Lee became a baseball coach? What does Monte do to instill his teach culture? What does his fall training session look like? How does his mind work with practice design? Does he use technology with his practices? How does he intentionally develop his staff? What are some of the rules that Monte Lee has? What does a typical practice plan look like? What are they doing in the batting cages? Does Monte Lee have a system for communicating within the team setting with players that don’t play regularly? What advice would he give to first-year coaches? What is something that he digs into that works for learning and improving? What is something that his players love to do in practice? What is something he may do that other coaches may not do? Which resources have been helpful to Monte? 3 Key Points: He tries to eliminate the fear of failure. It is more about the process, not the result. You can learn so much from just sitting back and listening. When you do say something to a player, make sure that it matters. Tweetable Quotes: “Got into coaching, really to be honest with you, I never thought about doing anything else. I just knew from a very young age.” – Monte Lee (00:47) “I can remember being 15-years-old and my high school baseball coach asking me what I wanted to do when I grew up, and I told him I want to come back and be the head baseball coach.” – Monte Lee (00:54) “The first thing I tried to instill in our guys is that everything that we do on a baseball field...we are on offense.” – Monte Lee (03:28) “We want our pitchers to throw every pitch with conviction and intent. We want our infielders when they are throwing the ball across the field to throw the ball with intent. We swing the bat with the intent to do damage.” – Monte Lee (04:23) “I would hope that if you were to ask anybody who ever worked for me, I always wanted to make sure that everybody on my staff feels appreciated and that their voice is heard. We have staff meetings at least once a week.” – Monte Lee (21:22) “We go over our team rules and our expectations and I have them sign it. It is pretty detailed. But it is pretty simple too. In a nutshell, it is just, be a good citizen.” – Monte Lee (25:29) “We have two square cages and two long cages at Clemson and we have one cage that we kind of call our data cage.” – Monte Lee (037:16) “You care about them and sometimes you probably don’t communicate with them as much as you would like to just because you feel bad for them. You feel bad that they are not getting the opportunity.” – Monte Lee (43:05) Resources Mentioned: Ahead of the Curve Podcast Twitter: @AOTC_podcast Monte Lee: Twitter Email for Monte Lee: montel@Clemson.edu
Monte Lee’s 4th season as the Clemson Baseball coach was a disappointment in the eyes of Tiger fans as the team failed to reach 40 wins for the first time in his tenure and once again made an early exit in a Regional. In this ep we recap the Tigers’ brief ACC Tournament appearance and disappointing postseason (2:36) as Clemson's Super Regional drought extends to 9 years. We then look back on what ailed the team this season (16:53), reflect on the bright spots (27:42), discuss where the program goes from here (36:31) and hand out season awards (47:02). The silver lining…it’s almost football season…Enjoy and Go Tigers!
The Tigers have had their way with Cali lately. Last year we took their best wide receiver. In January we claimed a trophy. Sunday we may steal a quarterback. And after the NFL Draft the Tigers will once again invade the Bay Area, and like last time they’re sending their best. 3/4 of the Clemson Tiger defensive line got drafted in the 1st round, then was made whole in the 4th. 6 Tigers got drafted over the weekend with several others earning a chance to make a team. The Clemson brand is stronger than ever. In this ep we discuss the Tigers’ showing in the NFL Draft which, though expected to be a bit stronger, is further proof of Clemson earning it’s place as one of College Football’s elites (2:15). We also check in on the baseball team who are suffering through their worst stretch of play in the Monte Lee era and give our thoughts on whether or not they can turn around the season (17:44). We wrap with some basketball thoughts on the Steve Smith situation and a recent transfer (48:24). Enjoy and Go Tigers!!!
