Welcome Clemson Women's Soccer Program To Our Team Of Subscribers



Welcome Coach Eddie Radwanski and the Clemson women’s soccer team to our team of Coaching and Leadership Journal subscribers. Since taking over the Tigers in 2011, Radwanski worked his way to earning the 2016 Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Soccer Coach of the Year honor, making him just the second in program history to receive the recognition. Beginning in 2014, Radwanski has had six consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances including an NCAA Round of 16 run in 2016. The Tigers have advanced to the NCAA Second Round in four of the last five seasons.

Under the direction of Radwanski, the 2016 squad won the second ACC Regular Season Champion title in program history, the first since 2000, and advance to its third consecutive NCAA Tournament.

We are proud and honored to have Coach Radwanski and the Clemson program on our team of subscribers! Our subscribers know that great leaders never stop learning and they never stop reading. They realize that for less than most people's monthly cable bill they can receive a year's worth of information that will make them better leaders, coaches and administrators.

We would love to have you on the team!

About The Journal

The Coaching and Leadership Journal is in its ninth year of production. Started in the fall of 2011 by Dan Spainhour, the Journal is now being read by coaches, administrations and athletic professionals all across the country and even in Canada.  Our subscriber list includes some of the top coaches in the business. Jerry York, NCAA's all-time winningest hockey coach has been a subscriber for over five years. Two-time NCAA women's' soccer champion Mark Krirkroian of Florida State has been with us for six years.

The mission of the Journal is to provide information that leaders need to read and to do so in a short condensed version. Each month, Spainhour and his team scour the internet, blogs, articles and magazines for information that will make you a better coach, leader and administrator.

Dan Spainhour on his Journal...

There is so much information out there and coaches/leaders are such busy people that it is hard to find time to sort through all of the clutter and determine the value of an article, blog, etc. I use my 27 years in the profession to evaluate what I think is beneficial and then I take the meat of the article and include it in the Journal. I know that leaders know how important it is to be readers it's just hard to find the time. That's why I started this Journal. Also, I believe that we comprehend better when we can hold what we're reading in our hands. That's why our Journal comes to you each month as both a printed Journal and a digital version which allows you to read it as a book and also have it with you no matter where you are.

Congratulations To Rob Krimmel, A CLJ Subscriber


Saint Francis University head men’s basketball coach Rob Krimmel has been selected as the 2020 recipient of the Guardians of the Game Award for Service presented by CoPeace from the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC).

Krimmel will receive the award at the AT&T NABC Guardians of the Awards Show on Sunday, April 5, in Atlanta as part of the NABC Convention and the NCAA Men’s Final Four.

Having spent more than half of his life as a player and coach at Saint Francis, Krimmel has had quite an impact on a university with a larger undergraduate enrollment (1,726) than residents (1,255) of its location in Loretto, Pa.

As a four-year player for the Red Flash, he was a three-year starter and two-time co-captain who led the Northeast Conference in three-point field goal percentage (43.5) as a senior and ranks fifth (39.8) on the school’s all-time list in that category.  Krimmel was the NEC men’s basketball scholar-athlete of the year as a senior and a two-time Academic All-America selection by ESPN The Magazine.

A member of the men’s basketball staff following graduation, Krimmel was named the 21st head coach in the school’s history in April of 2012. Over the last seven seasons he has put the Red Flash on an upward projectory with three trips to the conference semifinals, two appearances in the NEC championship game and a berth in the NIT in 2019.

Krimmel’s success at Saint Francis hasn’t been limited to his team or the Saint Francis community.  He is in his eighth season as a head coach with the same number of years as a champion for Stay In To Win, a program presented to middle school-aged children with a focus on student success and dropout prevention. “I became involved after receiving a call from program director Al Foderaro from a reference provided by my friend and Lehigh head coach Brett Reed,” said Krimmel. “We started as a team working with students at Altoona Junior High School in 2013 and it has grown each year.” While the program is focused on the young students, it has been beneficial for the Saint Francis players as well. “This program has provided an opportunity for the players to speak to a large group of students about their own experiences and shape some of their own beliefs,” Krimmel said. “They share a wide range of skills and interests with the middle schoolers, including working on academic skills and the importance of an education.”

The Red Flash team joined TEAM IMPACT early in February 2014, just as it was making a turn and showing great improvement on the basketball court.  TEAM IMPACT is a national nonprofit that connects children facing serious and chronic illnesses with college athletic teams, forming life-long bonds and life-changing outcomes.  Its mission is to improve the quality of life for those children by establishing and expanding vibrant team-based support networks.

Saint Francis signed 12-year old Jorden McClure to their men’s basketball team.  Jorden, afflicted with Larsen’s Syndrome, a disorder of the development of the bones, wore number 43 at his first game as a member of the Red Flash when he was introduced to a standing ovation at Gol Arena as a member of the starting lineup.

“We have had a birthday party for Jorden and he has come to home and away games,” Krimmel said. “He’s now a senior in high school and may well follow in the tradition of his mother and sister, both graduates of Saint Francis, when he makes his college choice.”

We are proud and honored to have Coach Krimmel on our team of subscribers! We believe it is no coincidence that our subscribers are some of the top leaders in athletics and education. They realize that for less than most people's monthly cable bill they can receive a year's worth of information that will make them better leaders, coaches and administrators.

Dan, I love reading your journal! --Rob Krimmel, St. Francis Basketball

We would love to have you on the team!
