Gagliardi continues this role as teacher and mentor through his ???Theory of Coaching Football??? course at Saint John???s, which is one of the most popular classes on campus every year.A Legacy Unrivaled explores the man, his football philosophy, his life lessons, his sense of humor, and his connections to others through a very personal journey by author and former player Boz Bostrom.
