Six graduates of the 2018 Collegiate Coaching Consortium became head coaches this past off-season. Among this year's speakers include: Ohio State and North Carolina AD's Gene Smith and Bubba Cunningham, former Cleveland Browns General Manager Michael Lombardi, General Mills Chief Human Resources Officer Jacqueline Williams-Roll and Learning Leader podcast host Ryan Hawk.
