Pod: Brian Flacks, Stanford Men’s Water Polo Coach


Brian Flacks was named the new head coach at Stanford University on March 23, just a couple weeks after Jon Vargas’ surprising departure. He’ll take over as the men’s varsity head coach, only the fifth in the history of that storied program which has won 11 national titles.

That’s a lot, but not enough according to many observers who now look to one of the most successful high school coaches in America to bring more trophies back to The Farm in the coming years.

We talk about those expectations, what he’s done in his short time on campus, and, fascinatingly, about resentment and how it quite possibly stoked his passion for coaching the sport at the highest levels.
