How do I gain experience to become a head basketball coach?

Hello, I'm an 18 yr old college student and for future reference, I was wondering what is the best route to go in order to become a head basketball coach. I want to coach the high school, college level, and hopefully one day the pros as I love the game and love to strategize. How should I start should I try to find a high school or college coach to learn from or is there a distinct way. #coaching-basketball #coaching #sports #basketball

What is it like working at ESPN?

If you work at ESPN can you provide me some insights into what its like working there? Are there any special perks? What is the company culture like? I feel like it would be a fun place to work because you can always talk about sports with people (sports is one of my favorite topics to talk about.) I especially love talking about the 49ers and the Warriors! #sports #work #entertainment #broadcast-television #espn
