 Jim Larranaga Biography

Jim Larranaga is the head basketball coach at the University of Miami who rose to prominence at George Mason. Larranaga took George Mason from an NCAA Tournament 11 seed to the 2006 Final Four. He had 13 winning seasons with the Patriots overall, taking the team to five NCAA Tournaments. Twice Larranaga was voted Colonial Athletic Association Coach of the Year. Perhaps his greatest coaching achievement however has been making Miami relevant in the ACC. In his second season, the Canes went 29-7, won the ACC, and advanced to the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament. The banner campaign earned Larranaga ACC Coach of the Year and AP College Basketball Coach of the Year honors. Prior to his more well known coaching stops, he served as the head coach at Bowling Green for 11 years. Larranaga gained a name in coaching as an assistant at Virginia during two Final Four runs. In his coaching career, he was also the head coach at Division II American International and an assistant at Davidson. Larranaga was one of the greatest players in Providence College history and a member of the school’s Hall of Fame. Many principles that stay with him today were learned amidst a family of six growing up in the Bronx, New York.

  • Leading the Way: How Jim Larranaga Took The University of Miami from Irrelevant to Champions

    In the last decade, Coach Jim Larranaga has led two different programs from having no notoriety to being dominant contenders on the national scene. Most recently, Larranaga reinvigorated the University of Miami Hurricanes program from irrelevance to being ranked number two in the country and winning their first ACC title in school history—an accomplishment that earned Larranaga both AP and Naismith Coach of the Year honors. From the premise that “underdogs can beat the big dog,” Larranaga leads his team with a clear and well-defined plan that begins with recruitment and focuses on developing young talent. Audiences will learn how to:
    • Use an underdog status to their advantage
    • Compete without the same resources the big dogs have
    • Transform the underdog status into a winning mantra

  • The Art of Retaining, Developing and Recruiting Talent

    Finding talented, hardworking employees who will uphold the standards of your company is difficult. Coach Larranaga shares his tried-and-true methods for recruiting players and assistant coaches and for creating an environment that keeps them on the job. Larranaga tells audiences about his 8 C’s—character, competitiveness, competence, consistency, cohesiveness, commitment, communication and confidence—which are the foundation for selecting a winning staff and team and developing a championship-caliber program. Audiences will learn:
    • How to develop a program that will elevate their organization’s performance to the highest level
    • Where to find talented employees
    • How to build a winning, dedicated staff

  • Attitude, Commitment and Class: A Winning Philosophy and Formula for Success

    You can’t always predict external factors, but you can control your own behavior and attitude, Larranaga tells audiences. He shares the formula that has made him successful at both the University of Miami and George Mason University’s, one that helped him transform relatively unknown teams into some of sports’ greatest success stories. An educator first, Larranaga uses real-life examples from tough calls he has made on and off the courts to prepare his athletes for the game of life. Audiences will leave inspired, entertained and energized as they learn:
    • How to transform challenges into motivational opportunities
    • How individual attitudes can transform outcomes
    • How lessons learned on the court translate to other aspects of life, including professional careers and family life

  • Teamwork and Leadership: How to Achieve the Four Levels of Commitment

    A team that can relax and have fun together is a winning team, Larranaga explains to audiences, describing the scene just before the Final Four competition when his players skipped routine drills to spend time with family and fans. Sharing his four tenets of commitment—physical, mental, emotional and spiritual—he illustrates how unconditional dedication produces exceptional results in athletics and in life. Larranaga shares:
    • His winning formula for creating a team that works together on the court and supports each other on the sidelines
    • How to create an environment that fosters team growth while promoting individual development
    • How to push players to their limits without wearing them down emotionally and spiritually
