Share This Resource

Joe Ehrmann (@JoeEhrmann76), a PCA National Advisory Board Member and winner of PCA's Ronald L. Jensen Award for Lifetime Achievement, is a former NFL Pro Bowl defensive lineman, founder of Coach For America and author of InSide Out Coaching. Ehrmann gained additional prominence when Parade Magazine dubbed him “the most important coach in America” for his unorthodox, but highly effective, coaching at Gilman School in the Baltimore area. Ehrmann was also the subject of Season of Life by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jeffrey Marx.

Ehrmann was asked to advise the NFL on the Ray Rice domestic abuse controversy. He joined PCA Senior Marketing Communications and Content Manager David Jacobson (@CoachDaveJake) for a conversation, heard here, covering his work with the NFL around these issues and the role youth and high school sports can play in preventing gender violence.
