Craig Owens is an associate professor of English at Drake University, and, by his own admission, he is much more academic than athletic. This didn't stop him from merging the two worlds into a program he co-created and called "Coaching in the Classroom." Having acted as an honorary coach for the university's varsity women's basketball team, Craig was inspired to bring sports into the classroom. He spoke with producer Taylor Quimby about "Coaching in the Classroom."
