Back in June, Mussina signed on to coach the Montoursville Area High School for a stipend of $4,170. According to a recent article on SunGazette.com, he's enjoying his new job despite an 0-6 start.
It is a big challenge. It also is an opportunity to give back to a town he adores while providing life lessons that go beyond basketball. For Mussina, it does not get much better.
"I love coaching. If I didn't like doing this kind of stuff, I could be doing a whole lot of other things," Mussina said. "It's rewarding. It's nice to get out there and help these kids battle through a growing point in their lives when they have a lot of issues they have to tackle off the court, out of school and in school."
Good for Mussina, who went 270-153 with a 3.68 ERA over a fantastic 18-year career. He was a tremendous pitcher and is a class act. We wish him nothing but the best.
