ESPN Magazine - There's plenty of help out there if teams want it. John T. Reed, a Harvard MBA, Northern California real estate guru and former high school football coach, is the author of Football Clock Management, 280 pages of graphs and charts explaining how to handle time better. The book is also loaded with oft-forgotten mantras like "Every second you leave on the clock unnecessarily may be the one your opponent uses to beat you."
‘That was really good!’ - Bill Walsh
6/1/04—John T. Reed had just delivered a clinic speech on Football Clock Management to a select group of prominent minority coordinators at NCAA headquarters in Indianapolis. Bill Walsh, sitting in the front row after his lecture on the passing game, stood up and made that comment to Reed. Walsh seemed surprised at how much he had learned from the talk. When Reed asked Walsh for advice on how to make the talk better, Walsh added, “You’re the man on clock management. Act like it.”

If you have the guts to manage the clock correctly when everyone else is still doing it the old, wrong way, you probably also have the guts to benefit from my other book The Contrarian Edge for Football Offense.
