George Allen was a coach in the NFL for 20 years – with the Chicago Bears, the Los Angeles Rams and, later, Washington. In this book, his daughter, Jennifer, reflects on what it was like to grow up with a father who was obsessed with coaching and how a coach’s family copes with the moves and the disruption that comes with the job.
