Coach Mangini shares some great insight how he has navigated the criticism, shifted his perspective and how we can use the same process to  change our focus about our critics. Ever wonder why the New England Patriots are so successful ? Even when they may not have the most high profile players? Well, it all starts with a forward thinking mentality and a process that very few teams can duplicate. Coach talks about the Belichick “P.H.D.” process and why having an understanding of all aspects of your ”job”  can give you a significant advantage over your competitors.We also ask Coach Mangini questions about Tom Brady’s move to Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the NFL Draft , whether he sees himself returning to the NFL in a coaching capacity and why choosing to work as an analyst for ESPN came at a very important time in his life and career. All of this and a ton more, in this FIRE episode of The White Tiger Podcast. Check out the video version of our podcast with Coach Mangini on YouTube at: You Can Follow The White Tiger Podcast on Social: Instagram: @thewhitetigerpodcast  Facebook:  Twitter: @whitetiger092
