This week’s conversation is with Joanne McCallie, better known as “Coach P” – one of the most highly decorated female college basketball coaches in the country.

Over the last 28 years, Coach P has coached at Maine, Michigan State, and most recently Duke.

She’s the only Division I head coach to lead two different programs to 30-win seasons with three National Championship game appearances, and she won National Coach of the Year in 2005.

Coach P’s success on the court speaks for itself, but there was more that I wanted to explore with her.

She recently made her longtime battle with bipolar disorder public – something she didn’t feel comfortable revealing during her coaching career.

For those of you unfamiliar, bipolar disorder, or manic-depressive illness, is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks.

So in this conversation, we discuss Coach P’s experience battling this disorder while leading one of the premier program’s in the nation.
