One of my biggest takeaway’s from my time with Coach Dooley was the word integrity.   It was a passion of his to have as a cornerstone for his football program bur also one that he chose to live his life with.  You would think to have accomplished all he did and to have to have earned the status he has, there would be a sexier answer than the integrity.  However, that one word has sustained his legacy and left a mark on a profession and on thousands of lives!

Integrity may not always be noticed when something is being built, but it is for sure noticed when it is not present!  Thank you Coach Dooley for building a life that last and one that has left such a mark on so many people!  I pray that each of us will build a little slower, a little wiser and with a little more thought for what we are leaving behind!
