Publisher Description

“No football fan will want to miss this one.” —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

“A searing character study…a breathless, can’t-put-it-down read.” —LOS ANGELES TIMES

“As savvy, dirt-dishing expose.” —KIRKUS REVIEWS

From nationally-acclaimed journalist and ESPN commentator Skip Bayless, the newly updated eBook edition of the classic bestseller GOD'S COACH. First published in 1990, this unforgettable expose tears the metallic blue shine off the legendary star, revealing the truth about ‘America’s Team’ and its beloved head coach Tom Landry, whose much-regaled Christian charity extended to strangers everywhere, yet stopped short of the team who labored under him.

From the hangover that led Jerry Jones to buy the team, to the wild ride of the Staubach era, Bayless strips away the image of the team created by the most powerful PR machine in sports, revealed by insiders willing to break their silence.

Packed with unparalleled insight into one of the most storied franchises in the history of sports, GOD'S COACH is a compelling revelation about a corrupt football franchise that dared call itself America’s Team.

Skip Bayless appears daily as the host of ESPN’s First Take; his commentary appears regularly on ESPN.com. A former columnist for the Dallas Morning News, DALLAS TIMES HERALD, CHICAGO TRIBUNE, and SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, and sportswriter for the LOS ANGELES TIMES and MIAMI HERALD. In addition to GOD'S COACH, he is the author of THE BOYS and HELL-BENT.

I was a big cowboys fan

I was a Dallas Cowboys fan during my Jr. High school years. I was such a big fan I had a picture of Tom Landry in my wallet. I am not sure why I started liking them but I just remember they were America’s Team, and the the hole was left in Texas Stadium so God could watch His favorite team on Sundays. This book was a done with great class and dignity. It’s great to get a look behind the scenes and learn what what was really going on the sidelines and in the locker room. It was nice to see and learn about the way Tom Landry really was on the sidelines and and how he treated the players. It was far from what I saw on TV, but we often can’t believe everything we see on TV. Thank you for writing this book and thanks for all the players who added their valuable input.
