COACH FOR AMERICA CO-FOUNDER AND FORMER NFL PLAYER JOE EHRMANN TO PRESENT “LIVING A LEGACY” AT VITERBO OCT. 28; CONDUCT “INSIDEOUT COACHING” WORKSHOP OCT. 29

LA CROSSE, Wis. – Former first-round NFL draft pick and ten-year league veteran Joe Ehrmann will present “Living a Legacy” at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 28 in the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.

Ehrmann played defensive line for the Baltimore Colts from 1973–80 and for the Detroit Lions from 1981–82. He is the co-founder of Coach for America, an organization with the mission “to inform, inspire and initiate individual, communal and societal change that will empower men and women to be their very best—personally, professionally and relationally.”

At 6-foot-4 and 260 pounds, Ehrmann has a physically intimidating presence. However, he says that real strength isn’t about size, defeating your opponent, or winning. He believes that athletes and their mentors face a much tougher challenge—they have to look inside themselves and forge a meaningful moral purpose, and then apply that greater understanding to helping others thrive.

Ehrmann has been called “the most important coach in America” by Parade magazine.

“Joe is a special person who has dedicated his life to helping young people,” said Cal Ripken Jr., a member of the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame. “His message is powerful and makes a true impact. It is a message we can all learn from.”

While on campus, Ehrmann will also conduct a workshop entitled “InsideOut Coaching” for business leaders, coaches, and educators from 8–11 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29 in the Fine Arts Center Lobby. To register for the workshop, contact Maureen Cooney at 608-796-3082 or mjcooney@viterbo.edu.

Ehrmann’s presentation is part of the D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership’s fall lecture series. The event is free and open to the public. For a full schedule of D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership events, visit www.viterbo.edu/ethics.
